Finding a parking space in the centre of Barcelona can sometimes be a real ordeal. In an attempt to reduce car traffic in the city, Barcelona City Council has set up a number of park-and-ride facilities to encourage users to leave their cars on the outskirts of the city and take public transport to the centre.
There are numerous car parks at the entrances to Barcelona, both free and park-and-ride. Today, the city has 6 municipal car parks at the entrances to the city, with access to all types of public transport to reach the centre.

Not all park-and-ride facilities in Barcelona operate in the same way. In four car parks, you can use the park-and-ride facilities with a Park & Ride card, which gives drivers access to a parking space at a reduced price for the number of days contracted.
For the other 2 non-paying park-and-ride sites, you will need to download the AMB P+R Aparcaments application from Intercanvi Metropolitans - free for Android and iOs - and register for the service.
Then, on your return, before you get out of your vehicle, you will need to prove that you have used public transport using the validation machines located in the stations.
There are only two free park-and-ride facilities at the entrance to Barcelona. There are also free parking areas around the city. We still advise you to reserve your parking space in one of our car parks in Barcelona, to ensure that your vehicle is safe at all times.
