However, that date has now been and gone. Toll gates have been setup and are operational, but are not charging those travelling underneath any fee due to a technical issue.

According to the Gulf News, AD residents have yet to receive their login details.

As per the Department of Transport AD, residents in Abu Dhabi with vehicles registered in the capital will automatically be enrolled in the system. Vehicle owners will receive their login information via an SMS on their registered mobile number.

Residents not living in the Emirate that are trying to register their vehicle have a similar problem according to the local press.
