Free parking announced for three days
The directive will go into effect from Thursday, March 25, authorities said.
All public parking, except multi-storey parking, will be free of charge for three days, starting today, Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.
The advisory follows directives from the Dubai Ruler's Court noting that work would be suspended at government departments and institutions for three days, starting Thursday, as a mark of respect for the late Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, who passed away on Wednesday.
The free public parking will go into effect from Thursday, March 25, until Saturday, March 27, 2021. They will revert to paid parking on Sunday, March 28.
