TORONTO, March 30 /CNW/ – Paying a City of Toronto parking ticket just got easier. With a valid MasterCard or VISA, residents can now pay a City of Toronto parking ticket online, in three simple steps at www.toronto.ca/parkingtickets. “This new online parking ticket payment system is part of the City’s continued commitment to provide access to public services 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week,” said Joseph Pennachetti, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, “and it is the third online service available from the City of Toronto.”
“The online payment system is an easy, convenient way to pay a parking ticket,” said Giuliana Carbone, Director of Revenue Services. “Simply enter your ticket number, the parking ticket amount and credit card information.” A confirmation number is provided after a successful transaction. Those living outside of the City will also benefit from this new online service. More than half of all City of Toronto parking tickets are issued to non-Torontonians who can now pay Toronto parking tickets online, from anywhere they have internet access.
Parking tickets can also be paid over the phone with a VISA or MasterCard by calling 416-397-TAGS (8247) or at most banks and through the mail by sending a cheque to: City of Toronto, Parking Tag Operations, Box 8500, Postal Stations “A”, Toronto, ON M5W 2E1.
Permit renewals for on-street parking and registrations for Parks and Recreation programs can also be processed online at www.toronto.ca.
