The Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) of the Department of Municipalities and Transport in Abu Dhabi said the service introduced by MAWAQIF would ease life for the public who will not need to bother about hourly and daily parking fees.

“The permit is only eligible to be used in standard parking, and cannot be used in residents, villa areas or premium parking spaces marked with white and blue paint,” authorities said.

Companies and individuals can obtain permits for each of their vehicles as long as it doesn’t bear a public plate number. Additionally, different entities, mail delivery companies and service providers may also obtain permits for their vehicles or motorcycles.

New service doesn’t replace resident parking permits

Officials clarified that the limited-term permit does not replace resident parking permits. However, it replaces the daily parking ticket for standard parking which costs Dh2 per hour and Dh15 for a whole day.
