The environmental zone of Düsseldorf - Environmental lanes

To avoid diesel driving bans in the Düsseldorf city centre, the Clean Air Plan, adopted in February 2019, was supplemented by the introduction of lanes dedicated to electric vehicles.
On these sections, only certain vehicle types can drive under certain conditions.
On 15.04.2019 and 14.10.2019, three lanes for electric vehicles were set up. All electric or hybrid vehicles that have an E-license plate number or an E-Sticker are allowed to use these environmental lanes. Local public buses, taxis and car pools with at least 3 persons are also permitted. All other vehicles are prohibited from driving on these environmental lanes.

The streets concerned are Merowingerstraße towards the city centre, located between Kopernikusstraße and Ludwig-Hammers-Platz, and Prinz-Georg-Straße in both directions between Moltkestrasse and Bagelstrasse.
On 14.10.2019, a third environmental lane was introduced. It is divided into several sections, which will be completed shortly.

All lanes reserved for electric vehicles as well as possible deviations can be consulted in the free Green-Zones app. Same for possible exemptions and contact addresses.
