Starting after the holidays, Palermo now has a low emission zone, where permits need to be purchased.
Visitors have to buy a daily pass for 5€, and vehicles need to meet the standards (Euro 4 or Euro 3).
Residents have to pay more for the annual pass for vehicles not meeting the standard. For hybrid, LPG and CNG vehicles the cost is halved; for electric vehicles it is free.
The annual pass costs 600€ for coaches, 100€ for medical couriers.
We have categorised it as an access regulation, but it is a scheme that mixes access regulation with charging for entry permits.
