Parking citations

Parking citations

All citations are due and payable upon receipt. Citations can be paid online through the ASU Transportation Account or in person at the Parking and Transit Services office at the campus from which the citation was issued. Check payment may be sent to:

ASU Parking and Transit Services
PO Box 875025
Tempe AZ 85287-5205

Fines will not be considered satisfied until paid in full. A late fee of $10 will be assessed per citation that is unpaid after 30 days. Outstanding citations accrue late fees every 30 days up to 90 days, after which time any balance may be sent to a collection agency. All fees must be paid directly to PTS. Payments through ASU Interactive or Cashiering Services will not be accepted. Pay citations via the ASU Transportation Account

Financial aid payments will not clear citation fees from a student’s account, although outstanding citations will create restrictions on student services such as obtaining transcripts and registering for classes. PTS will attempt to mail customer statements to the address of record with the university or address on the motor vehicle department’s registered owner page monthly, reflecting outstanding balances. These can also be viewed by accessing one’s ASU Transportation Account.

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. Appeals may be submitted through one's ASU Transportation Account, 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. Visit the PTS appeals page to learn more about the appeals process.

Towing payments can be made online, but release paperwork must be processed in person at a PTS Customer Service Office to retrieve the vehicle, and storage fees may continue to accumulate.

Payroll deduction: After exhausting all administrative and legal remedies, any and all parking fees or fines owed to ASU by university employees are subject to collection by payroll deduction.

Appeals

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 Failure to pay a fee
Code 2 No ASU permit
Code 3 Invalid permit for a location
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. 

Parking and Transit Services
Arizona State University
PO Box 875205
Tempe, AZ 85287-5205
Mail Code: 5205

  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.
