Pay for Parking with Your Cell Phone
Residential Parking Permits are Going Paperless!
On May 9, 2017, Council approved changes to the Calgary Traffic Bylaw that allow the Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program to use electronic rather than physical permits. Click here to find out more.
How ParkPlus Cell Phone Accounts Work
With a ParkPlus cell phone account, you can pay for your on-street parking in any ParkPlus zone or for off-street parking in a CPA facility. There are four ways you can use your cell phone account:
*A minimum $1.00 purchase applies to all cell phone account transactions for on-street parking.
*The minimum purchase in a surface lot or parkade will vary depending on the minimum purchase for the facility.
Please note: the phone number that is used to activate the parking session must be used to deactivate the parking session, no matter what method of activation or deactivation is used.
Create your ParkPlus account to start enjoying the convenience of paying using your cell phone. The account creation process will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete. Depending on the type of device used, this time may vary.
For assistance in setting up your ParkPlus cell phone account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (403) 537-7275.
ParkPlus Cell Phone Account Benefits
Join Calgary's parking revolution! Sign up for a ParkPlus cell phone account today and enjoy great benefits, including:
Use your cell phone account in Surface Lots and Parkades
You can be notified at regular intervals to remind you that you have an active parking session (every one, two, three or four hours). You also have the option to specify a timeframe when you do not wish to be contacted by phone or email.
For example, if you arrive in the lot at 10:45 am, you automatically purchase time until 6:00 pm, the end of the current time period, as well as 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, the end of the next time period.
This service is provided to ensure that users activating a session near the end of the current time period avoid activating a parking session that's too short.
We encourage cell phone account holders who regularly park in CPA surface lots or parkades to maintain a sufficient account balance to pay for a 24-hour period.
