Abu Dhabi: The Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi (DoT) announced the launch of Mobile Fees Payment service for Abu Dhabi motorists that enables them to pay for parking by simply using their mobile phones.
The new service is aimed at offering Abu Dhabi registered vehicles convenient solutions that save their time and effort.
Mobile Fees Payment is an innovative service that allows motorists to pay their parking fees through their “Etisalat” or Emirates Integrated Telecommunication Company “Du” mobile telephone numbers by sending an SMS to 3009 in the following format: “Vehicle Plate Color and Category Space Plate Number Space Parking type (Premium or Standard) Space Duration in hours,” as in the following example: “Red10 1234 P or S 3” Once the message is sent, users will get an SMS response with a parking e-ticket number, highlighting the expiry date and time. The applicable parking fees is directly debited from the motorists mobile telephone number.
Only Abu Dhabi registered vehicles can use the service without prior registration. Vehicles registered in other emirates and interested in mobile fees payment must create an m-Mawaqif account. For more information regarding m-Mawaqif and how to create an account, motorists should visit www.mpark.mawaqif.ae.
DoT introduced Mawaqif in October 2009 to manage the parking issues across the congested parts of Abu Dhabi. The DoT is continuously seeking ways to introduce practical and innovative parking solutions in the Emirate to go with the unprecedented economic growth and urban expansion in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
