YAHOO: Free parking across Dubai for Eid with just a couple of exceptions
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced free parking for the Eid holiday, from Saturday (10 August) until Tuesday (13 August).
During the four-day long weekend all public car parks will be free of charge, except multi-storey parking terminals. So you can enjoy your holiday time in peace without having to worry about the parking ticket every hour.
Don’t have a car and still want to go around town till late? Dubai RTA has public transport hours extended just for you!
Here’s what you need to know:
The Dubai metro's red line will run from 5am to 2am from Saturday (August 10) to Tuesday (August 13) while the Green line trains will begin at 5:30am and run until 2am, with regular timings resuming from Wednesday (August 14).
If you’re taking the tram, you can plan to catch it between 6am and 1am from Saturday to Thursday and between 9am and 1am on Friday.
And just in case you miss out on your train or tram, you can always hop onto one of the many RTA busses that will run around the clock, starting at 4:26am and the timings of all metro feeder buses will be matched with the timings of the metro services.
