ONaparcar residents

ONaparcar residents app icon

ONaparcar Residents is a B:SM and Barcelona City Council service that enables users to pay for green-area residential parking in Barcelona using an app. You no longer need an actual green-area parking card, nor do you need to display a pre-paid ticket when parking in your residential zone. ONaparcar Residents is free and, in contrast to parking meters, you never overpay.

It’s quick and easy, and it turns your phone into a parking meter.

How does ONaparcar Residents work?

If your car is registered on the AREA parking system, once you have downloaded the ONaparcar Residents app, you can start using it to manage your residential parking payments. No queues, without having to find the parking meter and without displaying a ticket. If you have more than one vehicle, you can manage them all with the same user ID.

ONaparcar means you can extend paid parking periods from wherever you happen to be; check the last place you parked; manage tickets using personalised data and get information on prices and applicable discounts. You can also pay using a debit or credit card, under completely secure conditions.

ONaparcar Residents also allows you to access other B:SM parking apps: ApparkB, the app for paying by the minute in the city’s blue and green parking zones, and AreaDUM, the app for parking in goods loading/unloading areas.

ONaparcar Residents is an alternative, optional and voluntary payment method, which operates alongside traditional parking meters.

Literapolis BCN

Literapolis BCN app icon

This game is designed to foster reading and knowledge of the city. It is a "literary gymkhana" in which each player has to find various real geographical points in the city where the action of a book is set. Once each place has been located, and after each player has solved a problem, they are rewarded with new information so they can keep playing.

The game includes various novels. Each novel has three different itineraries: one for finding out the book and the author, another for answering questions about the book once you have read it and the third for decoding enigmas and puzzles related to the novel and the city. When they finish the gymkhana, the players win prizes linked to the novels.

The players have to complete ten tests per itinerary: a question corresponding to an exact point on the map is not activated until the players reach the exact place.

There are three kinds of test:

• Question - answer

• Taking a photo and, optionally, uploading it to Instagram

• Writing a short text

The game generates a reward for each answered test (illustrations, photos, videos), which the players store on their mobile phones and then continue playing.

The game generates a prize for each completed itinerary: 2x1 tickets or discounts for facilities or institutions that are connected to the plot of the novel.

Every three months, the game awards VIP prizes to the best players for each novel.

The project is run by Barcelona City Council, through the Institute of Culture's Barcelona UNESCO City of Literature Office. It has the support of the authors, the publishing companies, literary agents, bookshops, libraries and the Barcelona Education Consortium.
