Road and Transport Authority of Dubai has changed free public parking to Sunday instead of Fridays from the starting of this weekend.
Parking fees will now be charged from 8am to 10pm Monday to Saturday, except Sundays and public holidays – while fees for multistorey carparks will be applied 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
UAE government moved the official weekend to Saturday and Sunday from the starting of this year but Friday parking remained free in Dubai.
Under the new ruling vehicles can be parked in public parking areas of Dubai for a maximum of four consecutive hours in roadside parking slots; 24 hours in parking lots; and 30 days in multi-storey parking facilities.
