Park Safe: School Zone Safety Campaign
In support of COVID-19 precautions, the main CPA office (620-9 Avenue SW) closed effective March 17, 2020. The Impound Lot (400-39 Ave SE) location remains open with reduced hours of 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and from 12noon to 4pm on weekends. This may result in longer than usual wait times for customer service support. We thank you for your patience. Please remember that payment can be made online from the safety and convenience of your home.
CPA is enforcing physical distancing rules by requiring customers to remain 6 feet apart and limiting the number of people in our lobby at a time. This means customers may be required to wait outside before gaining access to the lobby. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring all necessary documentation with you.The health and safety of our customers and employees remains our highest priority. Please do not enter the Impound Lot if you are sick.
We are encouraging use of the MyParking App rather than pay machines and want to remind customers to use online tools to pay tickets, submit appeals, manage residential parking permits and top up your paid parking account.
The City of Calgary introduced a temporary 30 minute grace period for curbside parking from April 09 - May 31, 2020. Effective June 01, 2020 regular parking rates apply.
Each year, the Calgary Parking Authority receives hundreds of complaints about how people park in school zones.
As part of our Park Safe educational and awareness campaign, the CPA works with the Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Catholic School District to promote our Park Safe campaign throughout the year.
