RTA recently announced that public parking fees can now be paid via a WhatsApp bot, Mahboub.
Users only need to add to their contact list on 00971588009090, and head to the WhatsApp chat with Mahboub to pay public parking fee. The format is the same as the SMS format: 'plate code and number(space)area code(space)time in hours'
Other Methods of paying parking:
- You can also pay using the RTA app, where you can top up credit and find the location of your parking. You only have to set the amount of time you need and pay/renew as you go.
- You can also SMS 7275 which incurs a charge of AED 0.30 per SMS. The code for SMS is the same as the Whatsapp code.
This latest addition has been announced after the latest update of public parking dates being changed to free on Sunday from Friday.
