When Calgarians choose to park in CPA facilities, they are choosing to help our city. All surplus funds are returned to the City of Calgary and used to fund operations like libraries, recreational centres and other city services. Last year, the CPA returned $31M (including municipal taxes) to the City of Calgary. On average CPA's rates are 15% lower than the rates charged by its competitors.
Off-Street Parking RatesRates in parkades and surface lots are generally based on 12-hour periods. For example, day rates are from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and evening rates start from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Special evening and weekend rates reflect off-peak parking times.
Special Event SpaceThroughout the year, the CPA receives many requests from a range of organizations and associations to use our parking lots or parkades for an event. We rent out our facilities for events such as Stampede breakfasts, festivals and other special events.
