More than 5,000 paid parking spots will be activated in Al Ain city on March 1.
The new slots have come up near Al Ain Mall (Othman Ibn Affan Street) and in Al Sarouj area (Zayed bin Sultan Street).
They include 830 standard parking bays at Al Hosn, 581 spaces at Al Murabaa (standard), 2,137 standard and 158 premium parking bays at Al Kuwaitat, and 1,492 standard spots at Al Neyada.
