Types of Parking Tickets
Meter OffensesMeters are in effect Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 3 a.m., unless otherwise posted. Meters are not enforced on Sundays or on holidays. Hours of meter enforcement are posted on meters.
A $10 reduced rate for meter ticket violations are available for tickets paid by the end of the following business day. Options to pay the reduced rate include:
- In person at 54B District Court
- In a drop box
- By credit card over the phone by calling the Parking Division at (517) 351-7022
Gated Lot OffensesGated lots are parking ramps or parking lots which have a parking booth/attendant for receipt of payment of parking fees. The fee for daily or hourly parking is paid to the attendant on duty or the U-Pay machine upon exiting the parking ramp or lot. When the attendant leaves for the night, a pay-later notice is left on the windshield of the vehicle, which is titled "Parking Notice." Instructions for payment are stated on the notice.
If you have any questions, or if you do not find a parking notice on your vehicle, you may contact the East Lansing Treasury Department for the amount due and instructions for payment. As stated on the payment notice, unpaid notices will be turned over to the District Court and a parking violation will be issued. You will be responsible for any parking and late fees assessed by the Court.
