ParkPlus Pay Machines
From February 14th to 18th glow: Downtown Winter Lights Festival is happening in Calgary! CPA has partnered with them to provide you with free parking in Centennial Parkade, Convention Centre Parkade and James Short Parkade during the event. Just type in code GLOW9 (45699) on a pay machine in the parkade. Read more about it here.
Once you've pulled into a ParkPlus parking zone, make a note of the ParkPlus zone number located on signs lining the street on which you've parked. Then look for one of the ParkPlus Pay Machines (the pay machine must be located in the same pricing area as where you are parked) or pay by cell phone.
CPA has also introduced a new payment option called the Virtual Pay Machine, for customers on the go.
At a ParkPlus pay machine:
**Please note that the pay machines do not provide change and there is a $0.50 minimum purchase for all pay machine transactions for on-street parking. The minimum purchase in a surface lot or parkade varies depending on the minimum purchase for the facility.
Parking in Parkades and Surface Lots
If you are parked in a surface lot or parkade and wish to remain parked for longer than the current time period, press the "Max time" button twice at the initial time of purchase. The second press of the Max time button will allow parking to be paid for the next full time period. If needed, the – (subtract) button can be pressed to reduce the time.
