After a number of delays, the new Palermo access restriction will start on 10 October 2016.
The new Zona a Traffico Limitato (ZTL) is smaller than the previous zone, but therefore an entry permit needs to be bought for every vehicle except motorbikes wanting to enter the centre of the city.
The new scheme in Palermo is a joint low emission zone, combined with a charge and permit scheme.
Permits need to be purchased, for just one day or longer periods and can be bought online or in person in various offices throughout the city.
Electric vehicles receive a free permit, other permits are cheaper for cleaner vehicles.
