B:SM have been pioneers since 1994 with the introduction of a parking tariff system to provide citizens with the lowest price.
Barcelona de Serveis Municipals was the first company to introduce pricing by 15-minute time-slots across the entire network of car parks.
Reduction in the pay-as-you-go tariff to 5-minute times-slots, an initiative that was well-accepted by users and incorporated by other car park operators.
