Parking timings remain the same but there have been some updates to the tolls…

With the Holy Month now underway, there are a few change to the way our civil life in Abu Dhabi operates.

In line with the well-established tradition of adapting public service timings during the Holy Month in Abu Dhabi, there have been some changes to the operating hours of Government Happiness Centres, Darb Tolls and bus services — although Mawaqif outdoor parking charge periods remain the same.

Parking during Ramadan

As mentioned above the Mawaqif paid parking window is operating over its normal daily time period during Ramadan. Those hours are Monday to Saturday between 8am and midnight.

Darb Tolls

There have been some important updates to the Darb Tolls however, these will now be collected between the peak hours of 8am to 10am, and then again in the evening between 2pm and 4pm. As always there will be no charges collected on Sundays.
