Quarterly ticket for AREA residents, to disappear on the parking meters
Green AREA residents can enjoy the advantage of purchasing annual tickets by using the ONAparcar app for residents starting on 27 December 2017
AREA, the regulated parking areas in Barcelona, has launched new features for residents buying tickets for 2018. These changes, detailed in Fiscal Ordinance 3.12, affect the channels for obtaining tickets and their duration.
ONaparcar Residents app: from one day to the last business day of the year
Starting on 29 December 2017 at 8.00 pm, Green AREA residents who use the ONaparcar Residents app can start to purchase tickets for 2018. The permitted terms for the tickets issued by the app can be from one day to the last business day of 2018.
Using the free mobile app ONaparcar Residents, parking payment receipts no longer need to be placed under the vehicle windscreen since, due to being a digital receipt, it can be checked electronically and completely securely in real time by the street surveillance device.
Parking metres: from one day to 20 business days
Starting on 29 December 2017 at 8.00 pm, Green AREA residents can start to purchase tickets for 2018. The permitted terms for the tickets issued by the parking metre can be from one day and up to a maximum of 20 business days.
Remember that in this case you must put the payment receipt on the windscreen inside the vehicle, clearly visible from the outside and making sure that all data on the receipt are clearly visible so that validity can be checked.
Resident rate and permitted term for 2018
The rates for Green AREA residents for 2018 will continue to be 0.2 euros/day. Further, residents who have not received any parking violations will receive a clean record bonus of 0.2 euros/day and per vehicle. Residents can consult their 2018 rate at the website www.areaverda.cat.
Moreover, remember that the maximum period for the resident vehicle to be parked in the same space in their authorised area is seven calendar days.
Pollution alert periods
If there are pollution alerts, the rates for residents will not be increased.
Remember that during pollution alert periods for residents whose vehicles are parked in a regulated parking space other than their own neighbourhood, the base rate for the Blue or Green AREA for non-residents will be increased to the rate of 2 euros/hour in all cases, except for those vehicles rated as Zero Emissions, which will exceptionally be charged 0.0 euros/hour.
Vehicles classified as ECO will not pay any surcharge after the new digital parking metres that can distinguish these vehicles have been installed. The planned start-up date for these parking metres is May 2018.
