Last month, when passing under certain bridges, the Abu Dhabi Transport Department announced that residents of Abu Dhabi will have to pay a Abu Dhabi toll. The initial operating date has been set for October 15, 2019.
The date has been and is gone, though. Toll gates have been set up and are operational, but due to a technical problem, they do not charge those traveling under any fee.
AD residents have yet to receive their login details, according to the Gulf News.
According to the AD Department of Transport, the system will automatically enroll residents in Abu Dhabi with vehicles registered in the capital. Vehicle owners should receive their mobile number login information via an SMS.
According to the local press, residents who are not living in the Emirates trying to register their vehicle have a similar problem.
Abu Dhabi Toll to go live in 2020
Everyone who passes under the capital tollgate will pay AED 4 per trip and AED 2 for off-peak hours from 1 January 2020.
Senior citizens, disabled people are exempt from paying the fee in low-income groups and retirees.
Monthly caps also apply to the first car with AED 200, the second with AED 150 and any additional vehicles with AED 100.
