Authorized access for electric vehicles in restricted traffic zone

Good Practice Information

By authorizing access for electric vehicles to restricted traffic zones in the historical center of Malaga, the project aims to promote the acquisition and use of electric vehicles in the urban environment. The legal framework for this pratice is formed by the specific local rules regulating access to the historical center of the city of Malaga. The Mobility Area of the City of Malaga is the body involved in the implementation. The access system functions with a software configuration. The software counts the number of vehicles entering the area, based on various parameters. Therefore, multiple indicators can be drawn from the use of electric vehicles in the city center. Promotion of the use of the electric vehicles have been essential tools for the succesfull introduction of vehicles.

Evidence of success

This practice was transferred from the region of Nord Brabant. The information campaign about the use of electric vehicles in the restricted area was critical to the success.
