The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) was established by Law No. 30 of 2019 and is the entity responsible for managing the urban planning and transport sectors, and three regional municipalities.
As the entity responsible for supporting the growth and urban development of Abu Dhabi Emirate, the DMT guides, regulates, and monitors urban development activities. The expert authority improves municipal work to provide comprehensive services and creates higher living standards for residents through the supervision and management of the municipalities.
The DMT ensures the highest standards of safety, security, sustainability, and technological developments of land, air, and maritime transport networks of the Emirate, in line with the highest international standards and UAE legislation.
One of the DMT’s top priorities is to fulfill the vision of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, which draws on the vision of our UAE Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
