Mall of the Emirates and Deira City Centre will introduce charges for people who leave their cars in the parking lots for longer than three hours, reports The National. The malls hope to discourage future metro users from leaving their cars in the malls’ parking.
Both malls are connected to metro stations.
On weekdays the first three hours are free, with four at weekends. On weekdays each extra hour will be charged at AED20; at weekends the extra first and second hours will be charged at AED40 and AED60 respectively. Those watching movies in the malls’ cinemas will get an additional hour free.
The charges will be introduced when the Dubai Metro is launched on September 9.
