Abu Dhabi’s toll gate system will be free of charge for motorists during off-peak hours.
Authorities have confirmed that the AED 4 fee will be levied only during rush hour between 7:00 am-9:00 am and 5:00 pm-7:00 pm, from Saturday to Thursday.
There won’t be any charges on Fridays.
The fees are capped at AED 16 per day and AED 200 per month.
Previously the plan was to charge AED 2 during off-peak hours but that decision has now been amended.
The toll gates will be activated on January 2, 2020. A trial run of the system had gone live on October 15, 2019.
