To monitor city center vehicles traffic, telematics doors have been installed to control access to the City Limited Traffic Zones (ZTL).
The boundaries of the ZTL are marked by special road signs and have a series of ‘access points’ which are controlled by CCTVs that automatically detect all passing vehicles number plates. Transit through some of the ‘access points’ (those reserved exclusively for public transport and emergency vehicles), is prohibited at all times, 24/7.
Tourists travelling with their own or rental cars within the ZTL to reach their accommodation facilities or a garage can obtain a temporary access permit , although they should still pass through the authorized ‘access points’ only, excluding the lanes reserved for public transport which may not be used at any time.
To request this transit permit, upon arrival to your hotel or garage make sure to leave your number plate details. Staff will forward these details to the relevant office. Since the first entry in the area you need to reach the hotel within a maximum time of two hours.
For any further assistance, please contact the hotel concierge.
Disabled permit holders who need to enter the restricted traffic zone (ZTL) with their vehicle should call the toll-free number 800 339891.
