Parking woes return to haunt employees in Dubai Media City

For a while it seemed as if the parking woes of Tecom areas had been settled. Sufficient parking space had been reserved through permits for daily visitors, such as employees or students, while the irregular visitor to the area had been met in his demands through more metered parking facilities.

However, as became clear recently, the perfect balance has not yet been found, with people still going around in circles looking for a parking spot.

Last year, a newly-developed parking scheme was implemented in Dubai Media City (DMC), Dubai Internet City (DIC) and Dubai Knowledge Village (DKV). Companies registered in these localities were allocated parking permits on quota, which were distributed among staff.
