This site gives all the information you need about urban access regulations in Europe.

For explanations of the different regulation types schemes we include, see our overview pages

For how to use the map, see below.

This website can be used in a number of ways.

The different schemes in the cities are shown with the relevant colour menu, Low Emission Zones, Charging Scheme or major Access Regulation. Charging schemes have a - CS after the city name, major access regulation schemes have an - AR after the city name in the menus.

Background information on schemes can be found through the different scheme menu items, Low Emission Zones, Urban Road Charging Schemes or Urban Access Regulation Schemes, including impacts of schemes.

Translation: Use the pull-down list with flags to change the language. Please note, this is automatic translation so the wording in languages other than English may not be perfect, but the meaning should be understandable. We use automatic translation, otherwise we simply could not keep the site up to date in all EU languages.

Public authorities can register for our free European Union public authority Platform to help support their work on urban access regulations.

Physical regulations

You can find which towns and cities have physical regulations through the quick guide. If you want details of the physical regulations you will need to register with us. Then you can either zoom into the geographical area on the map, or click on the scheme type on the quick guide, which will bring you to the zoomed into regulated area. The login page (with a link to registration) will pop up automatically when you click to get information that needs registration. Registration also gives access to our periodic alerts for new or changed schemes.

Using the map

The map can be zoomed in and out, locations can be searched with the map search box. Double clicking on the mapped dots brings you directly to the full city information page. Popups with the main information for each scheme can be shown, or hidden. If you hover over the city dot, the popup displays. If you click on the city dot, then you can scroll through the popup. Where there is more than one scheme in the city, there is an arrow ►, where you can click through the popups for the different schemes in that city.

The logos represent the different schemes, which can be turned on or off the map. The colours of the dots on the map correspond to the colours used for the different schemes: Low Emission Zones, Urban Charging Schemes, Major Access Regulations. Once you log in, then the areas of the physical regulations are shown with the colours of the logos, No Access, Weight Restrictions, Length Restrictions, Width Restrictions, Height Restrictions (Height Restrictions, yellow) and Weight per Axle Restrictions.
If the bottom 6 logos are not as bright as the top three, then you are not logged in. To access these last 6 logos - our physical regulations - you need to be logged in.
