Bologna’s Old Town is one of the most ancient and better conserved sites in Italy. In order to continue to preserve this wonderful location, the municipality has introduced a series of limitations concerning the car circulation.
The city of Bologna has four different ZTL monitored by cameras, namely: Sirio, Zona Universitaria, Area T and S. Francesco.
Sirio ZTL is named after the surveillance device that monitors the accesses in: via San Vitale, Santo Stefano, D’Azeglio, Sant’Isaia, San Felice, Riva del Reno, Marconi, Alessandrini, Mascarella, Finelli, Capo di Lucca, Saragozza, Chiudare, Borgo S. Pietro (Irnerio and Finelli corners). The ZTL is always active from 7:00am to 8:00pm.
San Francesco ZTL is located right inside the Siro ZTL, therefore if you are here it means that you have already entered in a restricted traffic area. However, this one is active 24 hours a day.
The so called ZTL Universitaria surrounds the north and south areas of via Zamboni, where the access is free. The limitation is in the zones of Belomero and Belle Arti, where the access is forbidden to all the motor vehicles, 24 hours a day. The Limited Traffic Zone called Area T takes its name from the topographic configuration created by the crossing of via Rizzoli, via Ugo Bassi and via Indipendenza. Here, as in the University area, the ZTL is active 24 hours a day, all year long.
Even if you will be allowed to pay with any kind of card during the online booking procedure, at the pick-up time you must provide a credit card for the security deposit, unless you have selected a vehicle from the J, J Top or J Suv category. In this case you will need two credit cards, one of which must compulsorily be Gold or Platinum. We accept:

The holder of the credit card and the one of the Rental Agreement must be identified as the same person.
All the drivers in the rental agreement must be aged within 19 and 75 years old, having held the driving licence for at least one year. Young drivers under 25 years old, must pay a small surcharge.
