The Calgary Parking Authority: Offering So Much More than Parking
The CPA + Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary
We, like the rest of Canada, have been shaken by the on-going discoveries of mass graves on former Residential School land. Indigenous issues are our issues and our organization will continue to listen, learn and do our part to further Truth and Reconciliation in a genuine and meaningful way.
We have made the decision to donate 10% from each Platform Parkade monthly customer agreement (contract and/or Flex Pass) for the remainder of 2021 to the Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary.
The Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary is a non-profit with a mandate to provide social, cultural, education and employment services to Aboriginal peoples within the Calgary Metropolitan area.
Platform Parkade opened its doors on May 26, 2021 and is located in the East Village, Calgary’s oldest neighbourhood and one of the most traditionally important gathering places for local Indigenous peoples.

New Edmonton Trail Zones & Requirements
The CPA believes in building a better Calgary by working collaboratively to support the current and future parking needs of the communities we serve.
In December, as part of The City of Calgary’s Edmonton Trail improvements project, the Roads department installed maximum time limit and no stopping signage along the north and south lanes of Edmonton Trail NE from 7th Ave to 14th Ave NE to support a smooth flow of traffic and encourage efficient curbside utilization. Though no payment will be necessary at this time, registration is now required.
The CPA supports this project via enforcement and through online registration services. ParkPlus pay machines will not be installed in these new zones. Registration will be accessible through the MyParking app, Text to Park, Call to Park and our Virtual Pay Machine (VPM).
For more info, please visit The City of Calgary's website.
Plan your trip downtown with our On-street Occupancy map. Using ParkPlus transaction data, the map provides a guideline for on-street parking availability. The map also provides ParkPlus zone information including parking rates and time restrictions.
Our Report to the Community summarizes the Calgary Parking Authority's activities in the communities we serve and highlights the successes that we celebrated in 2020. You’ll find our financials, information about the role we play in Calgary as well as some of the ways in which we gave back to the community last year.
