“Visitors and citizens need convenient, short-stay parking to access the downtown and surrounding areas,” said Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “Increasing the number of on-street spaces in these areas helps support our business community and contributes to a vibrant downtown.”

“Transportation has added angled and off-peak parking to maximize the number of on-street parking spaces,” said Mac Logan, the City’s General Manager of Transportation. “Available parking is an important component of our transportation infrastructure.”
Calgary has a total of 6,396 on-street ParkPlus System™ spaces, with 4,284 in the downtown core and Beltline area alone. Adjustments to on-street parking stalls were mainly caused by long-term construction activities and curb adjustments to the road following construction.
“In partnership with Traffic Engineering, we have been able to add 437 stalls in response to customer requests for more on-street parking,” said Troy McLeod, GM of the Calgary Parking Authority. “Our online parking occupancy feature allows customers to locate on-street parking before leaving the house.”
The City’s Traffic Engineering establishes how on-street space is used and works with the Calgary Parking Authority to make the best use of street space.
