City announces snow route parking ban to begin Saturday

The City of Calgary is advising citizens of a snow route parking ban that will go into effect on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. Due to significant accumulations of snow and high drifting across Calgary, the Snow Route parking bans are expected to be in effect for 72 hours, or until lifted by The City.

How snow routes work

Calgarians who park on a snow route are asked to move their vehicles during the ban. Vehicles that remain parked on these roads are subject to enforcement, up to and including a parking tag and tow. Snow routes are marked by a blue sign with a white snowflake. To find more information regarding snow route parking bans, visit

The snow route parking ban will help crews clear Priority 2 routes from curb to curb as efficiently and safely as possible. Snow clearing operations are ongoing.

Business areas and downtown bans

Vehicles can continue to park in the ParkPlus system zones during the day (from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.) during a Snow Event. For more information on snow route parking bans, visit and click more information under the snow route banner.
