Parking and Towing Assistance Program (PTAP)


Parking and Towing Assistance Program (PTAP)

Amnesty Period:  June 1 – August 31

Payment Plan: Policy and Procedure Guidelines

Amnesty Period:

During the amnesty period, accrued late fees on past-due tickets will be forgiven and you will only have to pay back the original ticket balance. This applies to any ticket and associated late fees you have received, no matter how old the ticket is. This amnesty period is valid until August 31st.

Program Purpose:

Treasurer Tishaura Jones wants to make sure St. Louisans throughout the region to get out of debt and also are able to visit and support our wonderful, local businesses as the city gears up to safely and successfully re-open. This initiative is a bonus to help St. Louisans in difficult economic times.

Program Details:

The payment plan is an agreement between the vehicle owner, the STLTO, and the PVB in which the participant agrees to pay the amount of the ticket(s) over time instead of paying the full amount all at once. Each participant must agree to make all payments on the ticket balance of outstanding parking fines and fees.

Entering into a payment plan allows a vehicle owner to make individualized, monthly payments while avoiding vehicle immobilization (booting), towing, and further late fees.

To enroll in a payment plan, call the Parking Violations Bureau at 314-627-2232. When calling, please make sure you have your license plate number ready.

Payment Plan Requirements:

  1. Accrued parking tickets in the City of St. Louis of any amount.
  2. Agree to pay in monthly installments at agreed upon dates with the PVB.

Once enrolled, current tickets will be frozen so delinquent fees cannot continue to accrue.  Upon successful completion of the payment plan, the fees will be waived.

Making Payments to ParkLouie:

Once a monthly payment is agreed upon with the PVB, payment must be received by the monthly date set forth in your agreement. Monthly payments can be made by online, in person, by mail, or over the phone.

Missed Payments:

If a payment is expected to be late, the PVB must be notified in advance of the deadline.  If the first payment is late and PVB is not notified, the participant has until the end of that month for payment to be received.

If the second payment is late and the PVB is not notified, delinquent fees and license plate will be unfrozen on the upcoming first Tuesday of the month and the participant is able to become boot eligible.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much will my monthly payments be?

Your monthly payment will be the amount you agree on with the PVB Parking Violations Bureau (PVB), but no less than a minimum of $10.

What if I receive a ticket while enrolled in the payment plan?

If you receive a ticket while on the payment plan, that ticket will need to be added to your balance. You will need to call the PVB with this information so that a representative can update your plan.

What happens if I miss a payment?

Always contact the PVB if you believe you will miss your payment so you can get assistance before you miss the payment. If you miss your first payment, you will have until the end of the month to pay it. The second time you miss your second payment, all outstanding fees will be reapplied and you may become boot eligible.

Is there a minimum amount of fees I should have to be eligible for the program?

There is no minimum plate balance to be eligible for this program.
