Rethink to Thrive
In July 2021, City Council made the decision to fully integrate the CPA into The City of Calgary as part of ongoing work to transform the organization under the Rethink to Thrive strategy.
This new structure will allow us to contribute to vibrant, safe and accessible communities by managing and administering parking resources as one City team, providing better value to citizens and the business community.
We are unique compared to other parking providers as our overall parking revenue is invested back into The City of Calgary which funds projects like recreation centres, pathways and libraries. We also support communities through the Parking Revenue Reinvestment Program which stipulates how parking payments are reinvested back into the areas they were collected from.
Parking impacts how all citizens live, work and play in our city, and is an important part of the overall transportation system. A well-designed parking system that manages available street space effectively will improve traffic flow and enhance street conditions whether you walk, wheel, drive or take transit. We will continue to modernize our parking technology and conduct sustainable parking operations to make life better every day for Calgarians.
