The purpose of this website is to give information for those needing to access cities with vehicles. We provide information on Access Regulation Schemes (ARS) in Europe. ARS include Low Emission Zones, Congestion Charging or any other scheme or measure where access is regulated or restricted.
This website is funded by the European Union. Its contents are the sole responsibility of CLARS and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union. The European Union endorses the English version of the website.
The situation is regularly changing, new schemes are introduced or existing schemes altered. This site is regularly updated and makes reasonable efforts to be complete and accurate, however, this cannot be guaranteed. We can accept no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the information on this website, or for compliance of any individual vehicle with any scheme. We accept no responsibility for any action taken from information on this website. For the most accurate and up-to-date information on each scheme, please check the individual scheme website, which can be found from the city pages as well as the useful links pages.
All Schemes on this website have been officially confirmed as in operation or preparation. This may change, for example the air quality may improve through other means, or the start date may slip. There may also be schemes that are under preparation but not yet officially confirmed, that are not on this website.
We provide automatic translation to help you use the information. We accept no responsibility for the accuracy of translations.
