Welcome to the #SupportLocalYYC Parking Contest!

When you support local, there's lots to love!

Enter for a chance to win $200 worth of Parking Credits when you Support Local during your holiday shopping this year!

Local businesses put great neighbourhoods in Calgary on the map with their one-of-a-kind goods and services. In collaboration with The City of Calgary's Support Local Initiative, we are promoting these businesses to ensure they are discovered, explored, and supported.

Join us this holiday season to share the unique products and small businesses you love (and might have yet to come across otherwise). 

Every Saturday for four weeks, we'll randomly choose a winner who will receive $200 in parking credits valid for any Calgary Parking facility (On-street, parkades and surface lots) and they never expire!

Terms: Winners must have or create a ParkPlus Account for credits to be applied.

Parking Credits

Calgary Parking Credits are like unique coins or tokens to pay for parking your car in any Calgary Parking facility (on-street, parkades and surface lots). They are a convenient way to make parking easy, convenient and affordable. The credits are applied to a user's ParkPlus account, and can then be used instead of using regular money. Once parked, apply the credits when prompted on the MyParking app and Virtual Pay Machine, or insert your ticket into a physical pay machine.

Anyone can typically use parking credits, but they can't be transferred directly from one person's ParkPlus account to another. Others can benefit if you use your credits to cover their parking costs. Learn more about how to pay for parking.

Reinvesting into Calgary

Calgary Parking provides so much more than parking, with lots to love. We provide local businesses with parking support to enable shoppers to discover unique goods and services. There are 15 Business Improvement Areas (BIAs), each with distinct services and products. By collaborating with the Support Local Initiative, we hope to promote the business improvement area as a business or shopping area.  

The revenue generated from parking goes back into The City of Calgary to enhance our communities. Learn more about how parking revenue helps to transform Calgary.
