Short on cash? The Calgary Parking Authority has announced a new, more convenient way to park in the city.
Called ‘Text to Park”, customers can use their ParkPlus cell phone account to text the four digit ParkPlus zone number to 77587.
The ParkPlus system will then send a confirmation and let them know when the session expires.
Once customers return to their cars, they can text the code to the Park Plus contact number again and deactivate their parking.
“Text to Park is a great new feature to the ParkPlus System and makes activating and deactivating a parking session even easier for Calgarians,” said Troy McLeod, General Manager. “We’re continuing to look for new ways to use technology to make parking faster and more convenient for our customers.”
This feature is only available for customers who have a ParkPlus cell account, which can be acquired at the CPA’s website.
