Appeals

If you have received a citation that you believe has been issued in error or that there are grounds for dismissal of the Citation, ASU Parking and Transit Services provides avenues for appealing the citation. First-level appeals may be submitted through one’s ASU Transportation Account. Individuals may also submit a hand-written, completed form in person, by mail or fax. Appeals must be received within seven calendar days from the date the citation was issued, not including the day of issuance. 

The following citations can only be appealed if the responsible customer felt they were issued in error; any other reason will not be considered, and the appeal will be automatically canceled. These citations are also not eligible for consideration of a seven-day waiver.

Citation Code Violation description
Code 1 No parking rights for location
Code 3 Improper use of permit
Code 4 Failure to display or improper permit display
Code 5 Improper parking

 

Appeals process

The appeals process begins with a first-level review conducted by the ASU Parking and Transit Services Appeals office. 

  1. Submit the first-level appeal through one's ASU Transportation Account. Individuals may also submit a hand-written, completed form in person, by mail or by fax.

  1. Should a person find the ruling by the Parking and Transit Services Appeals office unsatisfactory, they may proceed with a second-level review to the Parking Citations Appeals Board. Here’s how to initiate a second-level review:
    1. Pay the citation in full. 
    2. File a written appeal to the PCAB within seven days after the PTS-conducted review decision date. The appeal must state, in detail, the grounds whereby it is believed the PTS decision was erroneous.
    3. Include a receipt issued from PTS that shows citation fine(s) are paid when submitting the appeal. 

Individuals unsatisfied with the PCAB judgment can seek a third-level, or judicial, review by filing with the Maricopa County Superior Court once existing appeal levels have been exhausted.
