Udrive is a car-sharing service that operates in the United Arab Emirates, including Sharjah. However, you cannot park Udrive cars anywhere in Sharjah without following specific parking rules and guidelines.
Here’s how Udrive typically works in Sharjah:
- Designated Parking Zones: Udrive vehicles should be parked in designated parking zones within the areas they operate. These zones are often predefined by the car-sharing service to ensure proper parking and easy access for users. You should look for designated Udrive parking zones when you want to park the vehicle.
- No Free Parking: You cannot park Udrive cars anywhere in Sharjah for free. You are responsible for the parking fees incurred during your reservation or parking duration. Always check for parking fees and follow the local parking regulations.
- End Your Trip Properly: When you finish using a Udrive vehicle, you must end your trip properly using the Udrive mobile app. This ensures that the vehicle is correctly parked, and the rental period is closed. Follow the instructions provided in the app for ending your trip.
- Penalties for Incorrect Parking: If you park a Udrive vehicle incorrectly or outside of designated zones, you may be subject to fines or penalties, which can be billed to your Udrive account.
- Local Regulations: It’s crucial to familiarize yourself with local parking regulations in Sharjah, as they may vary from one area to another. Always obey traffic and parking rules to avoid any legal issues.
Since parking regulations and availability can change over time, I recommend checking the latest Udrive guidelines and Sharjah’s parking regulations on the Udrive mobile app or website, as well as local traffic and parking authorities, for the most up-to-date information on where and how to park Udrive vehicles in Sharjah.

How to Contact Udrive in Case of a Problem?
Udrive has a terrible customer support service on phone so you will have to wait around 10 minutes for them to pick up your call if you are in a problem. So you will have to wait for them to pick up the call.
You can also get in touch with them on emails and they can reply to you.
Note: They are unresponsive on weekends and that is why they have a poor customer service record and their reviews tell the same about them.
