About mParking

RTA's mParking service (mParking) is a new value-added service that will allow motorists to pay for their virtual parking permit using their Etisalat and Du mobile phones by simply sending an SMS in a pre-defined format to 7275 (PARK) thus eliminating the need to walk to the Payment Display (P/D) Machines and search for coins. The mParking service also alerts the motorist via an SMS prior to virtual permit expiry and if needed the motorist can extend his/her parking period from his/her office or home without having to walk to his/her vehicle.
