Parking

During the period in which the Convention Centre serves as a vaccination site, free parking is available for Calgarians with appointments as they receive their vaccines. Convention Centre LOT 60 parkade will only be used by guests with booked vaccination appointments. Parking is free for the first 90 minutes. Guests will be required to register their license plate to receive the free parking via the pay machine or MyParking app.

As parking is limited, consider these convenient options:
Walk – our central location is easy to access.
Transit – the Convention Centre is located close to the Centre Street cTrain station, with multiple bus stops nearby. A transit subsidy is available after your vaccination. Plan your trip here.
Bike – Secure your bike in one of the bike racks available at the centre.

Details on location, pricing and hours can be found on the Calgary Parking Authority website.

Please note that guests are encouraged to use the MyParkingApp rather than pay machines to reduce contact.

The Plus 15 networks attached to the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre, including the Palliser/Tower, Hyatt Regency Calgary and Arts Commons networks, are closed to the public. Full details are available on the Plus 15 map.
