Loading Zone Pilot Project
On December 2nd, the Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) is introducing a one-year Loading Zone Pilot Project to increase short-term parking availability, providing more efficient curb space management for businesses and residents alike. The Pilot Project will require loading zone users to register their licence plates in the ParkPlus system to start a free, 20-minute parking session.
The zones selected are areas of particularly low compliance of the posted maximum time limit, according to a survey conducted by The City of Calgary.
Our goal is to ensure these loading zones are being used as intended; requiring plate registration will encourage users to comply with the posted time restriction allowing more Calgarians to conveniently access these spaces.
The CPA has been working closely with businesses and BIA’s/BRZ’s in the development and debut of the program to ensure it’s a fit for each community, and we’ll continue to assess and engage with Calgarians as it progresses.
