HARRISBURG – The Harrisburg Bureau of Police Parking Enforcement Division will be switching to a new ticketing system in June, which will help modernize payments and make it easier to avoid late-fees.

Starting June 5, all City of Harrisburg-issued parking tickets will be printed, and no longer hand written. Moving to a fully-computerized method will help the Division of Parking Enforcement be more consistent in its enforcement. Tickets will be instantly uploaded into a database, making them instantly payable online or over the phone.

Prior methods had officers manually input handwritten tickets into a computer, which could take multiple days before a ticket is registered in the system. In doing so, parking violators looking to pay a ticket may not have been able to make a payment until after the late fee deadline had already passed.

Harrisburg Police officers and Park Rangers will still issue yellow, handwritten tickets. Harrisburg Parking Enforcement officials believe that because there will be far fewer handwritten tickets, there will be minimal backlog to import those tickets into the digital online system.

Preferred payment is done either online at www.tocite.net/harrisburgpa/portal, or by phone (717) 987-6823. People can also pay in person at the City Treasurers’ Office Monday thru Friday from 8:30am to 2:30pm, by mailing payment to the City Treasurers’ Office at 10 N 2nd St., Suite 103, Harrisburg PA 17101, or by dropping it off at the City Treasurers’ drop box which is available 24 hours located to the rear of the City Hall Building.

If your ticket has a red stripe, it was issued by SP+/ Park Harrisburg. You will contact their office for payment instructions at (717) 234-2274.
