Paid parking meters in Abu Dhabi will be reactivated on Wednesday, July 1 (8:00 am).
The charges are being reintroduced by the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) after a period of three months.
Authorities had suspended the fees as part of efforts to limit the financial impact of COVID-19.
The payment machines are sterilised on a daily basis, but motorists have been advised to pay through the Darb application or via SMS.
