MAWAQiF is responsible for the management of all public parking in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Our paid parking services now cover different areas in Abu Dhabi since its launch in 2009. To know the current locations click here .
Parking Inspectors patrol the sectors where the system is implemented to enforce the parking law (No.18 year 2009) and to give advice and consultancy to parking users to ensure proper and legal usage of parking spaces. In case parking users fail to follow the guidelines and regulations of parking usage, appropriate measures will be taken by our parking inspectors such as issuing Parking Violation Tickets and arranging for car towing if required.
All parking spaces management by MAWAQiF are subject to parking fees. Parking users can purchase a Pay & Display ticket from any of our Pay & Display machines. These machines are clearly identified by MAWAQiF logo and painted in turquoise, accompanied with a two-tone colored curbstone marking which indicates the tariff for that parking area.
