UAE. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched an online recharge facility for Salik, the recently implements automated Dubai toll system . Customers can log on to the Salik website (http://salik.ae) to add credit to their accounts from the convenience of their home or office.

The online recharge service will enable Salik users to add more credit to their Salik account through three payment options: credit card, e-dirham or direct debit from the user’s bank account. The minimum recharge amount is AED50. “The online recharge service, without any additional fees involved, reiterates RTA’s commitment to provide Salik users with quality service that meet their requirements,” said Maitha Bin Adai, CEO of RTA.

“RTA is keen to provide the new online service in order to offer the public a diversity of options that will add to their convenience in using Salik. The service also reflects the modern demands of the society, whereby people prefer to conduct their transactions quickly and online.”

Motorists, who do not want to use the toll roads, can use the Dubai Crossing Road, which links Sharjah with Abu Dhabi. Salim Al-Sahir, director of online services at Dubai eGovernmnet, said the role of his organization in supporting RTA by facilitating the payment procedures of Salik has helped immensely in the success of the system, and has helped manage the traffic flow in Dubai.

This reflects the keen emphasis of the government to offer value-added services online.

Salik subscribers can now check their balance online and view the number of crossings through the tollgates located at Garhoud Bridge and Sheikh Zayed Road near the Mall of Emirates.

They can also amend their personal data and print out financial statements. Motorists can now check their accounts also through the new IVR service offered by the call center by calling 800-Salik (72545) and following the voice instructions.

The RTA has installed signboards to guide motorists to the toll gates located at Garhoud Bridge and Sheikh Zayed Road (Al Barsha Gate) near the Mall of Emirates, and also installed wayside signboards on the way-ins to Dubai to guide motorists to the toll areas apart from installing new signboards situated before petrol stations to guide motorists on Salik point of sales.
