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 www.edmonton.ca/epark 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).

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.
