A new agreement has been reached between the tour operators, the bus companies and the Rome city council to regulate the numbers of tourist buses entering the city centre daily. From 1 January 2006, 300 permits will be issued every day, 100 more than in the past, because the number will include small buses up to seven metres long which had previously not needed a permit. The price of a permit will rise from 67 to 212; there will be special discounts for ecological vehicles and the possibility of a season ticket. The tour buses will be offered more drop-off and pick-up points and several places where they will be allowed to park for up to two hours. It hoped that in 2006 a satellite system will be put in place to keep the tour buses under control. In the meantime there will be eight, two-man teams out in the centre to enforce the rules.
