If your New Year’s resolution is to save some cash, then this will help you tighten your belt from day one.
RTA has announced that parking will be free of charge on Tuesday January 1 across Dubai to celebrate the New Year (and to encourage you to crawl out of your bed, we imagine).
All paid parking zones will be free of charge except multi-level carparks, all day until Wednesday January 2.
Public transport is also ongoing, with the Dubai Metro Red Line running from 5am on Monday December 31 until midnight on Tuesday January 2. Green Line stations will also run until midnight but start at 5.30am.
The Dubai Tram will operate from 6am and 1am on Monday December 31 and Tuesday January 1.

Al Ghubaiba Station will open from 4.14am on Tuesday January 1 until 12.33am the next day and sub stations such as Al Satwa will open from 5am until 11pm (Tuesday January 1).
