Madrid is banning cars from its city center

Madrid’s mayor, Manuela Carmena, is serious about kicking personal cars off the road in the city center. On a November 5 show on Spanish radio networkCadena Ser, she confirmed that Madrid’s main avenue, the Gran Vía, will only allow access to bikes, buses, and taxis before she leaves office in May 2019, as noted by CityLab.

Carmena said she has every intention to “pedestrianize the Gran Vía in this legislature.” The effort is part of a larger plan to ban all diesel cars in Madrid by 2025. Established in 1910, the Gran Vía is a busy, six-lane road that cuts through the city’s center — making the upcoming car ban highly ambitious.
