Dispute your fine

Mistakes happen and we understand they happen unintentionally. If you’d like to attempt to resolve your Notice of Violation through Metrolinx’s dispute resolution program, you must submit your request within 15 days of receiving the Notice of Violation. Here are two options for you:

1. If you wish to dispute the amount of the fine, use our fast, online fine review system to see if you are eligible for an automatic reduction. You’ll get an immediate response to potentially reduce your fine. Click here to submit your request.

2. If you presented a valid ticket (paper ticket, PRESTO card, or e-ticket) at the time your ticket was inspected by the officer and you received a Notice of Violation, or your Notice of Violation number begins with a “V”, submit your request here.

If you disagree with the decision from option 1 or 2, as a next step, you must submit your written request for a hearing within two weeks from the date the decision was sent to you.
