Specific ticket concerns?

Call 604-257-8732, Monday – Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm.

If your ticket number does not display in the online payment system, check to make sure it is a City of Vancouver parking ticket. If it is, it may not have been entered into our system yet.

You can provide us the ticket information and we will manually add your ticket to the system. You can:

  • Bring the ticket to City Hall. Staff will enter the ticket into the system and you can pay it while you are at City Hall.
  • Fax a copy to Bylaw Fines at 604-873-7051. Once the ticket is entered, you can pay it through the online system. Do not send your credit card information by fax.
  • Scan and email a copy of the ticket to bylaw.fines@vancouver.ca. Once the ticket is entered, you can pay it through the online system. Do not send your credit card information by email.

Or you can wait, and try to pay your ticket online tomorrow.

If you try to pay online but the system is down for maintenance, and you need to meet a payment deadline, call 3-1-1 for help.
