Corona: Milan Area C is back in place

Milan Area C was suspended until 14 June 2020 due to the Corona virus crisis. 

On what days and times is Area C in force?

Area C is active from Monday to Friday, from 7:30 to 19:30.
Area C is not active on weekends and public holidays.

What are the ways and boundaries of Area C?

Area C corresponds to the ZTL Cerchia dei Bastioni (the same area as the former Ecopass).
It is delimited by 43 electronic gates equipped with video cameras, of which 6 exclusive accesses for public transport and one for promiscuous transport.

Do the cameras detect only the entry or exit from Area C?

The camera system only detects the license plates of incoming cars. However, the regulation prohibits not only the transit at the gates but also the dynamic circulation, that is the movement of the vehicle, inside Area C and outwards.

Who cannot enter Area C?

The following vehicles are prohibited from accessing and circulating:

  • cars in environmental class prohibited
  • dual fuel diesel-LPG and diesel-methane Euro 0, 1 and 2 and Euro I and II
  • two-stroke motorcycles and mopeds Euro 0 and 1 and diesel oil Euro 0 and 1
  • with length greater than 7,5 meters
  • intended for the transport of goods, in the time slot between 08:00 and 10:00.

Euro 4 diesel vehicles belonging to residents and equivalent, can no longer access Area C from 1 October 2019.
