A Residential Parking Permit (RPP) is a permit issued by us, the Calgary Parking Authority, to residents living at a qualifying address within a residential parking zone.

Permits are digital and are valid for two-years from the date they are approved. Residents typically apply for and manage their permits themselves using the online RPP system, while residents without internet access can contact our customer service team to have their accounts set up on their behalf.

All of the information you need to learn about the RPP program, set up and account and apply for or renew permits is found on this site. If you require assistance please send us an email or call us during business hours and we will be happy to help you.

Benefits of Digital Permits

There are benefits to managing your permits using the online RPP system:

  • A quick online permit application and renewal process.
  • Easily start and stop your visitor sessions from any device with internet connectivity rather than calling in to activate.
  • More effective and efficient enforcement of residential parking zones. Enforcement of the residential parking zones is done primarily by photo enforcement and supplemented by our enforcement officers.
