Rearrangement of the touristic bus stops in Ciutat Vella
Reorganization is aimed to optimize existing stops and to create new ones, in order to preserve the historic centre and to disperse tourist pressure

Touristic bus stops have been rearranged in Ciutat Vella. The stop at Plaça Ramon Berenguer el Gran is cancelled from now on and, in fact, in this square is about to start an urban development project to turn it into a larger space, giving continuity to Via Laietana and highlighting the remains of the old-city walls and the statue of Ramon Berenguer The Great. On the other hand, the stop in Plaça Antoni Maura will be exclusive for coaches transporting people with reduced mobility or school groups, with previous reservation through the website www.zonabus.cat.
Reorganization is aimed to optimize existing bus stops and to create new ones, in order to preserve the historic centre and to disperse tourist pressure. In this sense, Consolat de Mar and Isabel II stops will be cancelled, and lead to the creation of a new stop in Passeig Colom, with 7 places, near the B:SM car park of Moll d’Espanya, that has 20 places for the buses to park for longer periods of time.
Passeig Lluis Companys’ stop and parking zone remains as is with 2 and 4 spaces each, and so is the Plaça Catalunya stop, with 2 spots. Furthermore, there are other bus stops available for touristic coaches, sucha as Drassanes stop (3 spaces) Paral·lel parking zone (5) and Carrer Sardenya stop (10), which is near to the Barcelona-nord B:SM car park (3).
Coaches are allowed to be 10 minuts to drop and pick up tourist at the stops, 2 hours at the parking zones and longer stays, even days, at Barcelona-Nord and Moll d’Espanya car parks.
ZonaBus is a exclusive parking zone net for touristic buses located near the busiest tourist areas in Barcelona. With this service, touristic bus parking is much easier and organized for professionals, but also for citizens.
