How to pay a fine for a summons you received on the subway or bus

Here are your options for paying the fine associated with TAB notices of violation.

About fine payments

  • Fines are due within 30 days of receiving a notice of violation.
  • If the payment is unresolved after 60 days, we will initiate appropriate legal measures to collect the fine.
  • Note: ACI Payments, Inc., the service provider for payments made online, by phone, and via money order, charges a convenience fee for payment processing.

If you need additional time to pay the fine

  • You are responsible for paying the violation. However, if you are unable to pay the violation in full, you can request a Time Payment Plan. Call us at 347-643-5805. There is a $10 processing fee for payment plans.
