Does the City owe you money?

There’s $6.1 million in unclaimed citation repayments sitting at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

Those who paid a traffic citation twice by mistake, accidentally paid higher than they owed, or any other citation mistake, may be due a refund from the SFMTA’s bank account.

The funds are for parking and transit citations issued between Jan. 1, 1995 and June 30, 2012. The amounts due to be refunded are around $100 each.

For now, the $6.1 million is sitting in SFMTA’s operating fund, according to the agency. The SFMTA is seeking those who are owed this money, and has a deadline of March 3 to reclaim the funds.

The SFMTA tried to reach all the people who were due refunds through “the normal notification process,” spokesman Paul Rose said, with “repeated attempts to reach out to people using the contact information we had on hand.”

When that failed, the SFMTA put out the call, for one and all to claim their money.

Any funds left over after the deadline will “become the property of the City and County of San Francisco,” the agency wrote.

The agency has an alphabetical list of citations, which the public can check for their names:

0-9, A-B
