Dubai offers 70 free parking spaces for 'green' vehicles

DUBAI, May 29, 2018

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed work on 70 free parking spaces for environment-friendly vehicles at 40 paid parking zones across the emirate under its 'Dubai Green Mobility' initiative.

The RTA move comes as part of Phase One of the scheme offering free parking to eco-friendly vehicles in the emirate.

Maitha bin Adai, the chief executive of RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency, said a total of 70 free parking spaces are being designated in 40 parking zones in different parts of Dubai.

"RTA is keen on spreading this initiative to high-density traffic areas and streets across Dubai with the aim of covering most paid parking zones in vital areas. Locations include the Central Business Districts, Trade Centre area, Burj Khalifa, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Street and Sheikh Zayed Road," stated bin Adai.

"The parking spaces are marked by green-painted frames with signs showing the maximum allowable use time, and the fine applicable on parking violations. Only eco-friendly vehicles are allowed to access these parking slots, and for a time limit of four hours, which will increase the rotation of using each parking," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
