Calgary Parking Authority: Introducing the Newest Member to the ParkPlus Family - The 'MyParking' App for Android!

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - The Calgary Parking Authority is excited to launch the MyParking app for Android. Gone are the days of our customers reminding us that "there's an app for iPhone…why isn't there one for Android."

This app is a part of the overall ParkPlus account management overhaul that includes the much anticipated ability to view your account balance as well as load additional funds onto your account from a mobile device.

"Our cell phone customers have been asking us to build a MyParking app for Android for what seems like forever," says Calgary Parking Authority General Manager Mike Derbyshire. "Well, the time has come - it's here and we know that our Android users will absolutely love it. They will notice the improvements immediately."

Other features included in the MyParking app include the ability to:

  • Start or Stop parking sessions in ParkPlus zones; no cards or coins required
  • Only pay for the time you've actually parked by deactivating your session
  • Manage licence plates associated with your ParkPlus account
  • Manage your low balance notification
  • Retrieve account activity reports about your monthly parking transactions
  • Access real-time parkade availability

The MyParking app for Android is now available as a free download from the Google Play Store or it can be accessed via our new ParkPlus mobile payment landing page at m.parkplus.ca where customers, using any device, can immediately access ParkPlus and the Virtual Pay Machine.
