DUBAI: Smart phones will soon replace tickets at all public parks in Dubai. This was revealed by Assistant Director General of Corporate Support Sector at Dubai Municipality Eng Mohamed Abdulkareem Julfar.

The Dubai Municipality is currently working on installing smart gates in public parks affiliated to the Municipality.

The smart gates will allow entry fee payments through NOL cards or smart phones paired with NOL card via a certain application. The municipality is adopting latest technologies that suit all segments of the society, Julfar added. 

The Municipality has already commenced the project’s first phase. It will feature installation of 70 smart gates at entrances of four public parks namely Al Mamzar, Za’abeel, Mushref and Al Khor. These gates will be ready for use once the installation is complete, he added.  

The public parks in Dubai attract a large number of visitors. Smart gates will greatly contribute to facilitating an easy entry to the parks.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) recently signed an agreement with the Dubai Municipality allowing for operating and collecting fees of public facilities run by the Municipality via NOL card. As per the agreement, the RTA has to install electronic devices for charging and selling NOL cards.

This will be according to locations, quantities and specifications determined by the two sides. The Municipality has to inform the RTA about legislations and laws of the relevant tariff, he explained.

The agreement is made in the context of the Dubai Government’s efforts to boost the cooperation between public entities in the interest of the local community. It is also to support the Smart City initiative of the Dubai Government.
