Abu Dhabi: Public parking will be paid in the capital between 9am and 2pm, and between 9pm and 2:30am on weekdays during the month of Ramadan, the Department of Transport’s Integrated Transport Centre announced on May 1.

On Thursdays, parking will remain paid in the evening hours only until midnight, whereas parking will be free on Fridays.

In addition, worshippers attending Taraweeh prayers at mosques will not have to pay for parking around mosques as long as the vehicle does not block other vehicles or impedes traffic flow.

The authority also said that bus services will continue operating non-stop during the Iftar period, but the frequency of buses on some routes will reduce after Iftar.
