About the ParkPlus System
Almost 20 years ago, Calgary Parking (at that time the Calgary Parking Authority (CPA)) was looking for a technology solution to manage on-street public parking, parkades and surface lots but there wasn't a viable solution available in the marketplace. So, we decided to create one oursleves! Our in-house developers started from scratch and built ParkPlus, an industry-leading platform that manages parking, payments and enforcement with a single identifier - the licence plate. Launched in 2007, The City of Calgary was the first to implement this leading edge technology. (click here to read more about the ParkPlus origin story!)

Update your MyParking App
Calgary Parking changed payment providers from Bambora to Moneris on the MyParking App. Please update your MyParking App to the latest version to ensure there is no disruption to your parking. There will be no change to the funds that are in your ParkPlus account.
If you previously set up credit card information or enabled auto top up on an older version of the app, please update your app and re-enter your credit card information and re-enable auto top up so you can continue to add funds to your account easily.
You will be unable to add funds on the older versions of the MyParking app as it will no longer be supported. Please update your MyParking app to the latest version to continue use. We apologize for the inconvenience.
