Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do once I pay for parking?

Since we use LPR on campus once you pay for your parking using a paystation, the paybyphone app, going online or by coming to our desk a virtual ePermit is created in our system that is then tied to your license plate. As a result, no further steps are required once you pay for parking.

Can I get an extension on my citation?

Appeals: are part of a legal process and as a result, extensions are not available for citations.

Early Payment deadline: is part of a legal process and as a result, extensions are not available for citations.

Payment plans: Citations are eligible for a payment plan after the 15th day of the citation date up until plea court, as a result extension of this deadline are not available.

What is the early payment citation reduction?

If you have received a parking citation, many bylaws will grant 14 calendar days to pay the fine at a reduced cost. After the 14-day period, the citation value moves to the full value of the citation.

How are citations enforced?

The University of Regina issues and enforces its own citations. Please note that if at any point the citation is paid or successfully appealed the citation life cycle comes to an end. Once a citation is issued here is the timeline of that citation’s life cycle

  • Citation is issued
  • 7 days to appeal (time lines are frozen during the appeal process)
  • 14 days to pay the early payment amount if one is available.
  • Pending Summons Notice is issued
  • Summons is issued and a plea hearing is scheduled.
  • Provincial Bylaw Plea Court session has various outcomes based on "not guilty" or "guilty" plea.
    • If a "not guilty" plea is entered then a Trial Court Session is scheduled.
  • During the Provincial Bylaw Trial Court session the Justice rules if the appellant is "not guilty" or "guilty"

I received a Pending Summons/Summons in the mail what do I do?

If you have received a Pending Summons or Summons in the mail and you do not choose to advance the citation matter to Provincial Bylaw Court you may pay online or contact our administration office to address the citation matter.

If you do choose to advance the citation matter to Provincial Bylaw Court you may ignore the Pending Summons and we will issue a Summons with your court date and time. If you do not respond to the Summons and do not appear in court to contest the matter, the Justice may grant a Default Conviction in your absence and the matter will be advanced to collections if not paid within 30 days of the Default Conviction Notice.

What is LPR and how does it work?

LPR (License Plate Recognition), also known as ANPR (Automatic Number-Plate Recognition) is an image-processing technology used to identify vehicles by their license plates. The system uses illumination and an infrared camera to take the image of the front or rear of the vehicle, then image-processing software analyzes the images and extracts the license plate information comparing it to our Paystation, Paybyphone, and other ePermit records making your plate your permit. This removes the need for paper permits or plastic hangtags and greatly reduces the amount of paper and plastic waste produced.

How does LPR benefit me?

Eliminates the need to display physical permits and the need to move permits from vehicle-to-vehicle. Enables paperless pay stations on campus and direct payment through your mobile device using the PayByPhone app for contactless payment and easy time renewal. Returning to your vehicle to display a paper permit is no longer necessary. Lost or stolen permits and the associated fees and processing times are eliminated. No more issues with forgetting a permit, or having issues with a permit falling from the rearview mirror or being displayed improperly. Reduces waste and litter in all campus lots while greatly reducing the amount of paper and plastic consumed from creating physical permits. You can purchase additional parking time easily from anywhere on campus using Pay Stations or the PayByPhone app and no longer need to return to your vehicle in the event added time is needed for your stay.
