If you have friends and family from the wider UAE driving to Dubai, let them know that parking now should be a breeze.
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has simplified paying for parking fees through text messages so drivers of cars registered in other emirates and GCC countries can now use it.
Out-of-town motorists can now pay for parking without having to sign up for the RTA’s mobile app, which can also alert them to free parking during public holidays. That’s handy for visitors who don’t have data or access to Wi-Fi.
Remember, as well as the RTA’s handy app, Dubai dwellers can use Nol cards to pay for parking.
Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency at the RTA, says: “RTA always seeks to bring happiness to people and develop smart solutions in support of its strategic goals. Such efforts are in line with Dubai government’s migration to a smart government to ease the services on offer to the public and render Dubai as a happy environment for residents, visitors and tourists.”
