B:SM Car Parks provide parking spaces for healthcare staff
Some 500 free parking spaces are being offered to professionals at healthcare centres working to fight against COVID-19
Access to car parks is provided through licence-plate identification to enable the entry and exit of vehicles whilst avoiding the need for any contact
In view of the health emergency resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, and in line with the implementation of Royal Decree on the State of Alert (RD 463/2020), the B:SM network of car parks is working to ensure maximum parking facilities for healthcare professionals at the city’s medical centres. That means each need has been assessed, in coordination with managers of the medical centres closest to a Xarxa d’Aparcaments car park, to offer the best parking solution to the city’s healthcare staff. All in all, some 500 free parking spaces have been made available at the following car parks:
Hospital del Mar - BSM Hospital del Mar + BSM Marina Port
Hospital Esperança - BSM Travessera de Dalt
Clínica Platón - BSM Pl. Bonanova + BSM Mitre - Putxet
Hospital Sant Pau - BSM Avda. Gaudi
Hospital de Barcelona BSM Flos i Calcat
Grup Mutuam - BSM Travessera de Dalt
Grup Mutuam - BSM Estació del Nord
P.S. Pere Virgili and CAP Larrad - BSM Travessera de Dalt
P.S. Pere Virgili and CAP Gràcia - BSM Travessera de Dalt
P.S. Pere Virgili and CAP Barceloneta - BSM Hospital del Mar
P.S. Pere Virgili and CAP Vila Olímpica - BSM Marina Port
Barcelona Public Health Agency - BSM Torrent de l'Olla
CAP Sardenya, 466 - BSM Marina Gràcia
Access to car parks is enabled through licence-plate recognition to permit entries and exits at car parks and promote prevention by reducing the need for contact to a minimum, given that the barrier automatically opens for users without them having to stop or take out a ticket.
At the same time, around ten places have been made available for workers from the Barcelona Public Health Agency in the B:SM Torrent de l’Olla car park.
Aparcaments B:SM in response to the health emergency
In view of this exceptional situation, work is also being carried out to meet the various needs of car park permit holders and those who, during the state of alert, are unable to use their permits and therefore have no vehicle in a car park, so they can apply for a temporary cancellation of their permit at no cost.
In addition, advice for preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus has been displayed and disseminated on digital screens located in car parks while preventive and disinfection measures have been implemented at all facilities to ensure the safety of workers and users.
