Municipal Court improves online payments; New online payment vendor and convenience fee start June 4
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 31, 2018
Paying your Municipal Court tickets online is about to become even more convenient. Starting Monday, June 4, customers will be able to go online to pay multiple tickets in one transaction.
The court is switching to JetPay, which already handles all other online City payments, so the upgrade should be seamless. JetPay will charge a convenience fee of 2% of the total amount due in addition to a 25 cents transaction fee that applies whether you’re paying one ticket or several at once.
The convenience fee goes directly to JetPay and is not retained by Municipal Court or the City. Online payments can be made with a credit or debit card. There is no fee to search for cases, court dates, bond information or to request a continuance online.
To pay Municipal Court tickets without incurring the convenience fee you may either:
- Pay in person Monday through Friday at Violations Bureau on the first floor of the courthouse at 511 E. 11th St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. You may pay with cash, check, money order, or credit or debit card.
- Mail a check or money order for the amount payable to “Municipal Court” to P.O. Box 219381, Kansas City, MO 64121-9381. Please write the ticket number(s) of the ticket you are paying in the memo field.
The Court does not accept payments over the phone. Partial or installment payments must be made by mail or in person and cannot be made online.
