Do you drive an electric or hybrid car? Then we have some good news for you

The RTA has announced that it will provide 70 free parking spaces for environmentally-friendly vehicles across 40 paid parking zones  in Dubai.

According to an official statement from the Dubai Media Office, you should see the special parking spaces begin cropping up around the city in key high-density traffic areas, including Central Business Districts, Trade Centre area, Burj Khalifa, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Street and Sheikh Zayed Road.

They’ll be easy to spot, too. Each eco-friendly space will be marked by a green frame with the words “Environmentally Friendly Vehicles Only” emblazoned across them. An accompanying sign will also display the maximum amount of time the spot can be used for (4 hours), as well as the appropriate fine applicable for any violations.

Part of Dubai’s Green Mobility initiative, this is the first phase in offering free parking for eco-friendly vehicles, with the aim of encouraging more people to adopt emission-saving cars in the future.
