Parking Violations


To pay parking violations online click HERE.

NOTE: There is a non-refundable transaction fee of $3.95 when you pay parking citations online. This fee is charged by the financial service provider. The description on your credit card billing statement will be “remit-online.” To avoid the convenience fee, you may call (239) 463-5888 to pay over the phone or by mail.


If you wish to contest a violation, you must do so within 10 business days of receiving the citation. If you fail to pay the fine in the allotted time or fail to appear to contest the violation, the right to contest the violation will be waived, and the Town will have the right to an order up to the maximum civil penalty.


Registration Holds


The Town implements registration holds on anyone with three outstanding parking violations or one outstanding handicap violation. The process for recipients of a parking ticket is:


-A parking violation is issued and must be paid within 3 business days; if not paid in 4-10 business, the fine increases. After 10 business days of non-payment a final increase will be assessed.


-After one month of being delinquent, a courtesy letter will be sent to the registered vehicle owner.


-After the second month of delinquency, a second courtesy letter will be sent to the registered vehicle owner.


-Pursuant to Section 316.1967 (payment of parking violations) the Town implements the Florida State Dept. of Motor Vehicles registration “hold” process, which places a hold on vehicle registrations for three outstanding parking violations or one outstanding handicap violation. The hold will remain in place until the fine is paid in full (at Town Hall) and proof is given so the hold can be removed. No additional fee is assessed by the Dept. of Motor Vehicles to clear a vehicle registration hold.



Be aware of where you park, and read the instructions on the parking signs. Should you have any questions or problems, contact Beach and Street Enforcement at (239) 463-5888 during business, 9am to 9pm, seven days a week. This number is also on each pay station and parking meter.


LeeTran will reintroduce its fixed-route bus services on Sunday, November 13, 2022. Here’s what Beach residents can expect for bus service:


LeeTran will run a variation of its route 410/490 schedules to and from Fort Myers Beach. This modified route will run from the Beach Park and Ride to Bowditch and will travel to the Southernmost point on Estero Blvd to Bay Beach Lane. Due to some damage at the Park and Ride station, buses may not be picking up/dropping off at their normal locations.


LeeTran has been operating a modified service since Hurricane Ian made landfall on September 28th, allowing LeeTran vehicles to be used for emergency transportation on barrier islands and service to emergency shelters, Disaster Recovery Centers and field hospitals. LeeTran temporarily halted bus fare collection prior to Hurricane Ian, but fare collection also will resume Sunday, November 13, 2022. 


Enjoy the water, the view, and all the fun things to do! That’s Fort Myers Beach Life!
