PARIS — City officials imposed partial driving ban in Paris on Monday and public transportation was free for a fourth consecutive day to help combat unusually high air pollution in and around the city, The New York Times reported.

Electric and hybrid vehicles were exempted, as were cars with three or more passengers, the cars of public transport employees and those with foreign plates. Regional trains, the Paris subway and bus system, the Vélib’ bike-sharing program and Autolib’ car-sharing service have been free, according to the report.
