We know—being on a payment plan for a parking ticket probably isn’t exactly the most riveting thing to be enrolled in, but we at least want everyone to know the option is there.
Here’s the lowdown—if you’d like to enroll in a payment plan for parking tickets, visit our Parking Violations Branch at 913 Filbert Street, or call 1-888-591-3636 and press 1451 as you hear the language options. From there, one of our customer service representatives can check to see if you’re eligible.
In general, the amount owed must be over $125 and the minimum monthly payment is $20 with a maximum term of 12 months.
If you’re eligible to be on a payment plan, here are some things to keep in mind:
- All open tickets (unpaid tickets or tickets not currently scheduled for a hearing) must be enrolled.
- A 25% down payment is required, except if your vehicle is currently booted/ towed.
- If your vehicle is currently booted/towed, or there is a previously defaulted payment plan, a 50% down payment will be required.
Once you’re approved and a down payment is made, monthly deductions will be made from either your checking account, or credit card you have provided. The following credit cards are accepted for payment plans:
- American Express
- Debit card with a MC or Visa logo.
Any questions? A customer service representative can be reached at 1-888-591-3636, or we can field your questions on Twitter or Facebook. Also—if you’re already enrolled in a payment plan, you can check the status here. Just make sure you have your plan number handy.
