Parking Amnesty Program

For a limited time, the City of Philadelphia is offering a program to forgive older unpaid parking tickets. This program started on March 1, 2018, and will end on April 30, 2018.

When you enroll in the program, you must first pay any tickets issued between January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2017. A payment plan is available to make it easier.

Once you pay these tickets, any parking tickets you received before 2013 will be forgiven.

The Parking Amnesty Program does not cover any traffic or moving violation tickets.

You are eligible for this program if you have unpaid parking tickets from before 2013.

If you can't pay the full amount at once, you can ask to set up a payment plan. To start a payment plan, you must pay at least 10% of the total due. You will have 24 months to complete the payment plan. Once the balance is paid, all parking tickets issued to you before 2013 will be forgiven.

As soon as you have enrolled in the Parking Amnesty Program, and as long as you stay up to date on your payments, your vehicle won't be booted and towed for any tickets you received in 2017 or before.

Last chance to see Winter Fountains, by Jennifer Steinkamp, at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This is part of the City’s Parkway 100. The domes feature eight digital animations on 4 domes spread out along the parkway. The imagery was inspired by Benjamins Franklin’s research, and the art and science explorations represented by the nearby Parkway institutions. The four domes and projectors are installed along the Parkway at Aviator Park in front of the Franklin Institute, the Rodin Museum grounds near 21st Street, the Park Towne Place Museum Residences, and the Spring Garden Triangle near Eakins Oval.
