How to Pay a Ticket


Fines are due in full on the day of sentencing, unless a payment agreement is ordered by the Judge. We accept cash, check, money order, cashier's check, Mastercard, and Visa.

Payment Options

  • Payments must be received on or before the due date.
  • Some tickets may be paid online at CitePay, without appearing in court. In order for CitePay to find you ticket you will need to enter your citation number starting with the numbers "081" that precede the letters "C" or "D". If the payment is past due CitePay will not allow online payment and the payment will need to be made by mail or at the counter.
  • Traffic Citations - Enclose the yellow copy of the citation and payment and mail it to: Missoula Municipal Court
    435 Ryman
    Missoula, MT 59802
  • We no longer accept credit card payments over the phone but can process Visa or MasterCard debit or credit cards at the counter.

Delinquent Accounts

If you do not pay according to your court-ordered payment schedule your drivers license may be suspended, you could be held in contempt or your sentence could be revoked.
