Free parking has been extended in Abu Dhabi until further notice and public transport hours will be adjusted for the duration of Eid Al Fitr.

On Thursday, the Integrated Transport Centre called on motorists not to block traffic or park their vehicles in prohibited areas. It clarified that residential parking permits must be renewed.

The centre said Mawaqif attendants will continue their inspections to ensure motorists are parking in the correct areas.

Meanwhile, public transport hours will be adjusted over the Eid holiday, which will begin on Friday and last until Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on whether Ramadan is made up of 29 or 30 days this year.

Customer centres will remain closed under measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 but services can be accessed online.

Public bus services will be available in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain City and Al Dhafra Region from 6am to 8pm. The service will be suspended early to facilitate the nightly disinfection campaign.

Intercity bus services are suspended until further notice.

Public bus service schedules are posted at ITC’s website. The details can be obtained by calling 80088888 or through the Darb app.

The free “Bus On-Demand” service that allows medical staff to book transport to and from work will continue between 6pm and 8am.

Bookings can be made through the Abu Dhabi Healthcare Link app.
