Pay a Parking Ticket or Transit Citation in San Francisco is a relatively easy thing to do. We have provided the information from the SFMTA below:

You can look up citation information, check the status of a protest, and make a payment online.

If you receive a parking or transit citation you must pay or protest the citation by the due date, or you will be subject to late fees and collections fees. Vehicles with five or more parking citations will be subject to booting and/or towing. Do not pay a citation if you wish to protest it.
