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.
In order to make the SMS format easy, registration will be not be required for Dubai registered private plate numbers starting with the alphabet character A-K & M whilst all other motorists who own a non Dubai private registered plate number MUST register to use the mParking service.
