Parking Rates

COVID-19 Update

In support of COVID-19 precautions, the main CPA office (620-9 Avenue SW) closed effective March 17, 2020. The Impound Lot (400-39 Ave SE) remains open with reduced hours 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday and 12noon - 4pm weekends. This may result in longer than usual wait times for customer service support. We thank you for your patience. Please remember payments can be made online from the safety and convenience of your home. 

CPA is enforcing physical distancing rules by requiring customers remain 6 feet apart and limiting the number of people in our lobby at one time. This means customers may be required to wait outside before gaining access to the lobby. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring all necessary documentation with you.The health and safety of our customers and employees remains 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.

The Calgary Parking Authority manages and operates 6,396 on-street stalls and 7,961 stalls in surface lots and parkades. We accept payment by coin or credit card at all locations on-street, in our surface lots and in our parkades. We also offer a payment by cell phone option. To find out more or register for your ParkPlus cell phone account, click here. You can also use the Virtual Pay Machine; click here to learn more.

When Calgarians choose to park in CPA facilities, they are choosing to help our city. All surplus funds are returned to the City of Calgary and used to fund operations like libraries, recreational centres and other city services. Last year, the CPA returned $31M (including municipal taxes) to the City of Calgary. On average CPA's rates are 15% lower than the rates charged by its competitors.

In the case of a discrepancy between the rates shown on this site and those displayed at the lot, the rates at the lot shall prevail.

Off-Street Parking Rates

Rates in parkades and surface lots are generally based on 12-hour periods. For example, day rates are from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and evening rates start from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Special evening and weekend rates reflect off-peak parking times.

Special Event Space

Throughout the year, the CPA receives many requests from a range of organizations and associations to use our parking lots or parkades for an event. We rent out our facilities for events such as Stampede breakfasts, festivals and other special events.
