The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched a service for issuing and renewing parking permits for the elderly and the disabled, and renewing permits for the disabled through smart phones using RTA DUBAI App.

The move is part of RTA’s incessant efforts towards harnessing the technology for serving the community and customers inspired by the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into the smartest city of the world.

“The RTA has already started the implementation of a plan to upgrade the benefits and effectiveness of this application through beefing up the number of services provided under the smart app RTA DUBAI for these two segments, namely: Disabled Parking Permit (Temporary), Disabled Parking Permit (Tourist), and Disabled Centers Parking Permit, in addition to a parking permit for those suffering chronic diseases and put on permanent visits to hospitals and medical centers.
