Abu Dhabi’s Integrated Transport Center announced that an SMS payment system is available across the city’s parking lots. The new option for all vehicles registered in the United Arab Emirates was made available on January 28, 2018.

In order to pay for parking, Abu Dhabi guests and citizens must send text messages to the 3009 number. Payments require stating a city code, license plate number and parking time duration. The new initiative made by the Abu Dhabi authorities makes parking payments easier for drivers who aren’t registered in Mawagif mobile app.

In the past, UAE residents had to register with Mawaqif in order to pay for parking time. UAE drivers are able to use Mawagif alongside the new SMS-based option.
