Dubai parking charges restructured

By Staff

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, has issued resolution on Public Parking Services in Dubai.

Under the decision, Dubai’s public parking spaces have been divided into two areas – the first includes spaces covered by the revised tariff, with the estimated number of these slots at about 30,000, or 23 per cent of the total parking slots in Dubai.

Dubai has more than 130,000 parking slots, of which only 30,000 will be impacted by the revised tariff.

For those that are impacted, the new tariff for street side parking will be:

•             Dh2 per 30 minutes

•             Dh4 per hour

•             Dh8 per two hours

•             Dh12 per three hours

•             Dh16 per four hours

For those that are impacted, the revised tariff for parking lots will be:

•             Dh3 per hour

•             Dh6 per two hours

•             Dh8 per three hours

•             Dh12 per four hours

•             Dh15 per five hours

•             Dh20 per 24 hours

The second category includes parking slots that fall under the old tariff, and these slots form the largest percentage of the total available public parking in Dubai, estimated at 77 per cent of the total.

The tariff for street-side parking for these slots remains:

•             Dh2 per hour

•             Dh5 per two hours

•             Dh8 per three hours

•             Dh11 per four hours

The tariff of parking lots in the unaffected areas remains:

•             Dh2 per hour

•             Dh4 per two hours

•             Dh 5 per three hours

•             Dh7 per four hours

•             Dh10 per 24 hours.

The resolution also determines the paid parking time at 14 hours per day, starting at 8am until 10pm on weekdays, except Fridays and public holidays, in order to increase the turnover of the use of a single slot during that period, and in response to the requirements of the local market which is witnessing an increase in traffic density.

In addition, the tariff in multi-storey parking buildings will become Dh5 per hour, in order to increase the turnover of the use of a single position in these multi-storey parking buildings.

The resolution also outlines changes in the tariff for seasonal parking cards. New seasonal permit rates for parking spaces on the side of the street are:

•             Dh1,400 per quarter

•             Dh2,500 per half-year

•             Dh4,500 per year.

For parking lots, the new tariff for seasonal parking cards will be:

•             Dh700 dirhams per quarter

•             Dh1,300 dirhams per half-year

•             Dh2,400 per year

The tariff for seasonal parking permits of multi-storey parking buildings will be:

•             Dh2,000 per quarter

•             Dh4,000 per half-year

•             Dh8,000 per year

Tariff for student parking permits will be Dh300 per quarter.

The resolution will come into force 60 days after publication in the Official Gazette.

The changes are aimed at streamlining the management of paid parking spaces in Dubai, finding solutions for the high demand for parking spaces and encouraging people to use mass transport.
