How it works

Ticket Ninja watches Chicago's parking ticket database to catch unpaid parking tickets for your car. If a ticket is found, the ninja emails you a notice, reminding you pay it. If you forget, the ninja pays it for you the day before the late fee kicks in. Never pay a late fee again.

Ticket Ninja is free if you don't get tickets!

If you do get a ticket, Ticket Ninja charges a fee of 15% of the ticket cost to securely store and process your credit card.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • What if I remember to pay my ticket?

    We encourage you to remember to pay your tickets through the city website. If you pay online before the deadline, Ticket Ninja will mark the ticket as "paid" and will not attempt to pay it again.

    If you pay by mail, it is recommended that you tell Ticket Ninja to "Ignore the ticket." While it is being ignored, Ticket Ninja will not attempt to pay the ticket. This way you will not end up paying twice ( once through Ticket Ninja and once by mail — if this happens, just contact us and we will refund you immediately)

  • What if I want to contest my ticket?

    If you decide to contest your ticket in court, click the "I want to contest this ticket" button in the notification email or click the link from your Ticket Ninja dashboard. Ticket Ninja will ignore the ticket while you wage war with parking enforcement.

  • Is my credit card secure?

    Yes, Ticket Ninja uses Stripe to securely store and process credit cards. Stripe is PCI compliant to the most stringent certification (Level 1, in case you were curious). Rest assured that your credit card data is safe.
