Dubai's RTA waives parking fees for 2 weeks amid Covid-19 outbreak

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that paid and multi-story parking throughout Dubai will be free of charge for a two-week period starting on March 31 as part of its initiatives to help alleviate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the UAE’s state-run WAM news agency, the initiative “supports the public during the period of preventative measures against Covid-19 and the national disinfection programme of the Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Ministry of Interior.”

“It also supports the government’s remote work initiative and its directives to citizens and residents to stay home.”

The move was immediately praised by local residents.
