Discount offered subject to payment being made within 30 days
Fines at toll gates in Abu Dhabi will be reduced by 25 percent if they are paid within 30 days.
Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, chairman of the Department of Transport, made the announcement on Sunday.
Earlier this month Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport announced that charges for its new road toll will be suspended until January 1 2020, with a trial period to operate from October 15 until that date.
Senior citizens, retirees, martyrs’ family members, people of determination and low-income earners will be exempt, according to eligibility.
In addition, those who access Abu Dhabi island on a regular basis will have a cap on daily and monthly fees. The daily cap will be AED16, while the monthly cap will be AED200 for the first vehicle, AED150 for the second, and AED100 for each additional vehicle.
The tolls, set at AED4 rush hour and AED2 non-peak hour, will apply to all motorists entering or exiting Abu Dhabi island.
