In support of COVID-19 precautions our hours of operation have been reduced to support the health of our staff and customers through social distancing. This may result in longer than usual wait times for customer service support. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this time.
As of March 17, 2020, the main CPA office (620-9 Avenue SW) will be closed. The Impound Lot (400-39 Ave SE) is actively enforcing physical distancing rules, requiring customers to remain 6 feet apart and limiting the number of people in our lobby at a time. This means customers may need to wait outside before gaining access to the lobby, so dress appropriately for the weather and have all necessary documentation with you to support an efficient visit. Please also note, the Impound Lot’s reduced hours of operation are 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 12noon until 4pm on weekends; please arrive early enough to ensure we have enough time to resolve your concerns.
The health and safety of our customers and employees is our highest priority. Please do not enter the Impound Lot if you are sick. We are encouraging use of the myParking App rather than pay machines and want to remind customers to use online tools to pay tickets, submit appeals, manage residential parking permits and top up your paid parking account.
To promote the use of virtual ticket payments rather than customers visiting our office, we have suspended the $3 online fee for ticket payments.
A residential parking permit is a permit issued by the Calgary Parking Authority to residents living at a qualifying address within a residential parking zone.
Qualified dwelling units can apply for two permits simultaneously at no cost. Exceptions are the AAA and YY permit zones.
You can search through the different residential parking areas by visiting our website at www.calgaryparking.com/parkingpermits or by calling 403-537-7000.
Note: Not every address within a Residential Parking Zone qualifies for a Residential Parking Permit. Please contact us at 403-537-7000 for specific addresses and requirements.
Communities may ask for residential parking restrictions to protect their communities from excessive parking in the area. The residents of the community petition through The City of Calgary's Traffic Operations to have their area restricted. City Council must approve the creation of new zones. If you are a resident in the area you must then apply for your parking permits to park on the affected streets.
