Touch screen e-parking metres set to launch across Dubai

Paying for parking in Dubai is set to get quicker and easier, with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announcing that touch screen e-parking metres are set to begin rolling out cross the city this month.

“eParking” tickets is a new solution for paying parking fees across Dubai. A number of upgraded parking metres will be rolled out and will be fitted touch screens that will give you the option to register your car’s parking without the need for physical, printed tickets – similarly to mobile parking payment.

You’ll be able to pay for your parking even more quickly and easily if you’re a nol card user – the contactless payment card used across the RTA’s services in Dubai.

The new metres will begin rolling out in the first few months of 2020, with the project continuing through until the end of 2020. According to the RTA, the project is designed to make life easier for residents.

“The project is part of a smart transformation of the Parking Department to meet the needs of road users in line with RTA’s strategic goals: Smart Dubai and People Happiness,” the RTA said in a statement.

Meanwhile, if you’re making your weekend plans, the Dubai Metro Red Line will have changed hours every Friday until mid-March. Our write-up with the alternative hours is available to read here.
