The toll system, 'Salik,' will begin operating on two key Dubai roads — Al Ittihad Road leading to and from the Garhoud Bridge and Shaikh Zayed Road near Mall of the Emirates — as part of RTA's effort to effectively manage traffic in Dubai and minimise congestion.

Eng Maitha Bin Adai, CEO of the RTA's Public Transport Department said, "The salik.ae web site is primarily an educational tool, to provide members of the public with a thorough understanding of the system, its operation and its benefits," she said. The site will eventually explain how to register for the service, where to buy the sensor cards and recharge credit, and will also explain the RTA's long-term goals for this service, she added. The public will be able to post questions about the new system and the technologies it uses. The site will be frequently updated.
