Only vehicles permitted after 9 pm are the usual we’ve accustomed to and the usual exemptions such as rental cars, moving to and from a hotel with a reservation, picking up or dropping off someone at the airport (with proper documentation), to and from work with en employment letter and to visit a medical center, among others. See the complete and official list of exemptions here.

The daytime restriction will remain as it has been until now: no restrictions weekdays, only on weekends: on Saturdays, only even ending plates 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 CAN circulate, while on Sundays only odds 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.

The above is not to be confused with the vehicular restrictions of San Jose center, which applies only within the borders of the Circunvalaction, weekdays, from 5 am to 9 pm, according to its license plate number: 1 and 2, on Mondays; 3 and 4 on Tuesdays; 5 and 6 on Wednesdays; 7 and 8 on Thursdays and 9 and 0 on Fridays.
