Free parking for two years for electric cars registered in Dubai


DUBAI – Owners of electric cars registered in Dubai will not need to pay public parking fees for two years, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced.

According to the RTA, the exemption came into effect in July 1.

Motorists do not need to apply for exemption as their electric vehicles can be automatically detected and exempted from parking fees.

“Upon entering the number plate of the vehicle, the parking inspector will verify if the vehicle is electric or otherwise, and accordingly subject to parking fees or exempted,” said Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency at RTA. ICA/Expat Media
