Have you seen these new parking meters in Dubai?
Motorists will no longer have to display paper tickets on their dashboards.
Motorists will soon be able to pay their parking fees by entering their vehicle details in a smart parking machine and tapping their Nol cards, which eliminates the need for a paper ticket.
In yet another move towards a sustainable future, Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Monday announced plans to launch eParking tickets. The project is part of a smart transformation of the Parking Department to meet the needs of road users in line with the RTA's strategic goals: 'Smart Dubai and People Happiness'.
The RTA will instal advanced parking meters in phases starting from the first quarter of this year till the end of 2022.
"The project will be an 'innovative solution' for paying parking fees without the need for a paper ticket," said the RTA in a statement.
"The project comes with upgraded parking meters fitted with interactive touchscreens, enabling users to enter vehicle details and have eParking tickets issued." The implementation of the project started after the analysis of public polls conducted during the pilot run of improved parking meters in several locations. "It responds to the growing public trend of using sophisticated technology that saves the hassles of issuing and displaying paper tickets on vehicles. It also eliminates offences resulting from the improper display of parking tickets, besides enabling the payment of parking fees for motorbikes.
Dubai Paperless Strategy
The eParking tickets is an alternative to the existing mParking, which involves sending of text messages through mobile phones. The new procedure eliminates the need for displaying a paper ticket on the windscreen of the vehicle. "The initiative is part of the RTA's efforts to develop new services compatible with the Smart City initiative, besides supporting Dubai Paperless Strategy."
The project falls in line with Dubai Paperless Strategy, which aims to build a perfectly integrated paperless government framework.
