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:

  1. MyParking App: Download the free MyParking app for the iPhone or Android to start and stop your parking session from within the app and be credited back for the unused time.
  2. Call to Park: You can activate a parking session by calling (403) 537-PARK (7275) and following the voice prompts to start a parking session. Call the same number back to deactivate the session to have your account credited back for the unused time! 
  3. Text to Park: You can also use Text to Park to pay for parking. Just text "start" and "end" with the ParkPlus zone number to 77587 (PPLUS) to activate and deactivate your parking session and be credited back for the unused time.
  4. Start Session Online: ParkPlus cell phone account holders can also start a parking session online.  Click here to find out more about online activations.

As long as you use the same phone number, you can start your session and end your session using any method (for example, you can start the session through the app and end it via Text to Park).

For assistance in setting up your ParkPlus cell phone account, please email parkplusadmin@calgaryparking.com or call (403) 537-7275.
