Dubai Government cares for people of determination and allocates the most convenient parking closest to buildings and ramps for them, provided they have the handicapped stickers on their cars. All stickers are free of cost with citizens, residents and tourists eligible to apply to the RTA.The RTA provides four kinds of stickers for people of determination: blue, red, green and yellow. Blue is for individuals who have permanent disabilities, red for temporary immobility, green for vehicles belonging to organizations for people of determination and yellow for tourists with disabilities. All applicants will require a medical report from Rashid Hospital, which needs to be submitted in person, along with the relative’s driving license and car registration to RTA Deira Traffic Department (Al Ittihad Branch) which is open from 7.30 am to 2.30 pm.In case a person with disability prefers to drive his/her own car, they can enroll for a disabled driver training course from Emirates Driving Institute and obtain their own license, before applying for a special parking permit. Tourists with disabilities who require a yellow sticker must get their medical report attested by their embassy/consulate before submission to the RTA.
An alternative to driving your own car is to use the Metro which has stations designed with a barrier-free access system to make the Metro accessible to all regardless of any physical impairment following best international practices. These include facilities like Braille and tactile guidance paths, lifts and ramps and specially designated spaces for wheelchairs.
