Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has simplified the services for the payment of the parking fees through text messages.
The enhanced services enable users to pay the parking fee directly without the need to register for the service.
It applies to vehicles registered in all emirates as well as GCC countries.
The service involves sending alerts to customers intending to use the service to confirm their intention to continue with the buying of the e-parking tickets when requests are made during public holidays.
“These services are aimed to simplify the payment of parking fees via SMS without requiring vehicles registered in other emirates or GCC countries to register for the service,” said Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency, RTA.
“Notifying customers requesting the service during public holidays enhances the transparency in dealing with clients by confirming their interest to proceed with the buying of the e-ticket.
"The customer who sends an SMS for buying a parking ticket during a public holiday will be notified through the system that the parking is free to use during the holiday. Accordingly, the customer will be prompted to confirm his or her intention of buying an e-parking ticket that will be valid after the end of the public holiday,” she explained.
