If you want to get rid of your vehicle, don't abandon it
An abandoned vehicle is toxic waste, which occupies a space on a public highway and makes the city look unsightly. It can cause safety issues and is a punishable offence. You can use Barcelona City Council’s towing service to get rid of your vehicle easily, quickly, safely and completely free of charge. And you will help to make Barcelona a more civic and environmentally-friendly city. Remember, by surrendering your vehicle, you qualify for the T-Verda card.
