Paying parking tickets in Dubai through a social media app will be made available soon in the emirate, an official from the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said.
Ahmed Mahboub, executive director of parking at RTA, said that motorists in the emirate will soon be able to pay their parking tickets through WhatsApp.
According to him, the new payment method is under the testing phase internally and will be made available in less than two weeks.
“People will be texting the same information that they send on 7275. The same content will be WhatsApped and then it will seek confirmation from the customer. It’s the same method that people use for SMS parking. The amount will be deducted from the digital valet,” he was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.
