CPA in the Community

COVID-19 Update

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 SEis 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.  

Reimagine a Parking Lot Program

The Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) believes in building a better Calgary by working collaboartively to support the current and future parking needs of the communities we serve.

To that end, we have launched a placemaking project to reshape a surface parking lot, engaging professionals to innovate the spaces and their communities.

Lot 43 (880 11 Street SE) in Inglewood will be redesigned through an open design competition being managed by the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC). The lot will remain open and operational throughout the project, and parking availability during peak hours will remain unaffected.
