Environmental zone of Lisbon 2 – Portugal

Lisbon is the largest city in Portugal and the capital of the country. The city lies on the hilly terrain of the Iberian Peninsula at the mouth of the Tagos river on the Atlantic coast in the extreme southwest of Europe.

Lisbon counts about half a million inhabitants and covers an area of 84.7 km². However, more than 2.5 million people live in the Greater Lisbon area and more than 30% of the Portuguese population, or 3.2 million people, lives in the Lisbon metropolitan area. The metropolitan region stretches across “Grande Lisboa” on the north bank of the Tagus river and the Península de Setúbal in the south.

The city experienced its “Golden Age” in the 15th and 16th centuries, when Portuguese sailors collected precious treasures. Portugal and thus Lisbon became rich and powerful. In 1755 an earthquake destroyed large part of the city.
Today, Lisbon is administratively divided into 4 districts (Bairros) and 53 municipalities, the Frequesias.

Air pollution in the Greater Lisbon area is mainly caused by road traffic, which is why the environmental zone of Lisbon 2 has been in place since 2012. The environmental zone of Lisbon 1 was already created in 2011.
The zone of Lisbon 2 is valid from Monday to Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm. On these weekdays and at these times, access for a wide range of vehicle types is limited by the rules of the zone.
The current status of access rights to the zone for the individual vehicle types and EURO standards can only be viewed in the Green-Zones app.
