Contributing to the city's mobility policy, by playing a major role in defining and managing car park policies and monitoring parking offences through efficient and quality management, is one of B:SM's main goals. The company has evolved by adapting its services and creating new ones, making travel through the city compatible with sustainable, planned, more efficient and environmentally friendly mobility.
B:SM - Parking
Boasting more than 40 public car parks and over 13,000 parking places throughout the city, B:SM's municipal parking network has established itself as an affordable and effective solution for citizens and users looking for somewhere to park. A network that offers a large range of parking products and solutions with quality management (ISO 9001 certified).
The AREA de Barcelona is the comprehensive street-level parking plan, first introduced in 2005, to manage mobility for destinations inside the regulated zone and reduce traffic tensions.
It includes all the street-level parking space within the regulated zone, which is distributed on a priority basis and operates through a system of regulations and tariffs. There are several types of spaces: blue, green, green for resident use only, loading and unloading, motorbikes, coaches and other special uses.
Bringing order to coach traffic
Bus stations contribute towards the coach traffic planning model and ensure adequate service levels for operating companies and users. They are the nerve centre for the arrival and departure of city buses and coaches. They are also an important interchange for different means of transport that help travellers to move around. And they offer a large variety of services, for companies and travellers alike, that follow quality, efficiency and sustainability criteria.
Barcelona's nerve centre
Located on Avda Meridiana, this station was historically a nerve centre linking Barcelona to its metropolitan area and several nearby counties, perfectly connected to the L1 Fabra i Puig metro stop and the Sant Andreu Arenal RENFE Rodalies train stop.
The mission of the Municipal Towing Service is to maintain road discipline as a key element in making the urban road network safer and more efficient, by helping to optimise road use, reduce the social costs of mobility and improve the quality of life of the general public. The service also provides other vehicle transfer and movement services to the public, City Council and other institutions.
Urban transport by bike
Bicing is a form of urban transport based on the shared use of bicycles. A simple, practical and sustainable service that you can use for your journeys round the city. For going wherever and whenever you want, without producing exhaust fumes or noise.
At the service of tourist coaches
Barcelona has a series of exclusive parking zones for coaches, which are close to the city's more attractive tourist points and which help and encourage orderly parking and stops for professionals in this sector.
