Pay a Parking Ticket

Learn about parking ticket payment options and the Administrative Monetary Penalty System.

You need to pay your parking ticket with 15 days.

If you think your ticket was a mistake, you need to make an appointment to dispute it within 15 days. The fifteen days start the day your ticket was issued. If you don’t pay within 15 days, you will need to pay late fees or other fees.

Important Notes

  1. When you mail your payment, you are responsible for it getting here. If it doesn’t arrive by the payment date, you will be charged extra. 
  2. We’ll charge a fee for any “non-sufficient funds”, cancelled, or reversed payments.
  3. Some penalty notices are given by private security companies. These include the letter “S” (for example: S12345). It can take us up to 5 business days to put these in our system. If your ticket is not listed, please try again after that time. It’s up to you to follow-up on the status of your penalty notice.
