The Roads and Transport Authority, RTA has allocated 70 free parking spaces for environment friendly vehicles in 40 paid parking zones across the Emirates.
According to the CEO of RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency, Maitha bin Adai said, “70 free parking spaces are designated in 40 parking zones in different parts of Dubai. RTA is ready to spread this initiative to high density traffic areas and streets across Dubai with the aim of covering most paid parking zones in some areas. Locations included the Central Business Districts, Trade Centre area, Burj Khalifa, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Street and Sheikh Zayed Road.”
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 enter these parking slots for four hours, which will increase the rotation of using each parking.
