Good Friday, April 3, 2015 and Easter Monday, April 6, 2015 are statutory holidays; therefore, no payment is required for on-street parking. Holiday rates are in effect for all Calgary Parking Authority surface lots and parkades, with the exception of the Calgary Zoo and TELUS Spark, where regular rates will be in effect.

Please note: The Calgary Parking Authority office will be closed on April 3 and April 6 and will re-open at 8:00 am on April 7.

The ParkPlus System 

Introduced to Calgary in 2007, the ParkPlus system allows you to pay for your parking with conveniently located ParkPlus pay machines or by cell phone with a registered ParkPlus cell phone account.

You can pay for your parking using coin or credit card.

Pay for Parking with your Cell Phone 

To pay by cell phone, sign up for a ParkPlus cell phone account. Get started by clicking on "Create Account".

Once you set up your ParkPlus account, you can pay for parking with your cell phone in four ways:

  • calling (403) 537-PARK (7275) and listening to the voice prompts;
  • using our Text to Park feature by texting "start" and "end" with your ParkPlus zone number to 77587 (PPLUS);
  • downloading the MyParking App for the iPhone to start a parking session from within the app; or
  • starting your parking session online.

Sign up for a ParkPlus cell phone account and enjoy these benefits: 

  • Only pay for the time you actually parked by deactivating your parking session;
  • Set up reminder notices to notify you when your time is about to expire;
  • Access a record of your parking transactions for the current and three previous months;
  • Receive a 25% discount for on-street parking with a qualifying small vehicle;
  • Use your ParkPlus account to pay for parking in CPA surface lots and parkades;
  • and many other benefits!

Edmonton Pilot Program

The City of Edmonton launched a six-month parking pilot project beginning June 10, 2013 that has now been extended.  The system is called EPark and will be powered by the ParkPlus System. See for more information.

Please note: EPark cell phone accounts and ParkPlus cell phone accounts are not transferable. Account holders must log-in to the site where the account was created to view, edit or add funds to an existing cell phone account.

Note: Both EPark cell phone accounts and ParkPlus cell phone accounts can be used to pay for parking in either Edmonton (EPark zones) or Calgary (ParkPlus zones).


Notice: We've changed the way we process credit card transactions for adding funds to your ParkPlus cell phone account to make it more secure. Click here for more information.

Please note: Your email address is not your log in.

Note:The Park Prime iPhone app and the Parkbot Lite app for Android are developed by third parties (Robots and Pencils Inc. and Conjure Software Ltd.) and have no relation to ParkPlus or the Calgary Parking Authority; therefore, it is not an approved or authorized feature of the ParkPlus system. Due to this reason we cannot provide administrative or technical support.

Note: We have added an additional security feature to this website. Cell phone account holders must complete a text verification process prior to receiving a new password.

Please note: Residential Parking Permits are not valid in ParkPlus zones.

It is recommended that you set up your ParkPlus cell phone account on a desktop computer, not on a mobile device.
