Pay your Way
We know it’s important to have options. Umo accepts a variety of payment choices to cater to every need, such as:
Pay Your Way - App
If you’ve already downloaded the Umo App and prefer to do everything in one place, head to the “Wallet” tab on your app to purchase a transit pass or add funds to your reloadable Umo account balance. After purchasing, scan the displayed QR code on the bus validator to board.
Tip: make sure you’ve entered your payment details in your account for a quick and easy checkout.
Pay Your Way - Pass
For the riders who prefer a physical transit card, Umo offers a reloadable smart card. Visit your local transit station to get your card, and reload it at any time in person or on umopass.com. Just tap your loaded Umo Pass card on the bus validator to board.
Pay Your Way - Tap
Perhaps your phone died or you forgot to plan ahead. Pay as you go with your contactless credit card or mobile wallet by simply tapping your card or phone on the bus validator when boarding.
Pay Your Way - Cash
We know not all riders have a smart phone or bank account, so cash is always an option. Visit your local transit station to buy a bus ticket with cash or to add funds to your reloadable Umo card.
Pay Your Way – Rideshare
Taking rideshare? We’re working towards a seamless booking experience, but for now, the Umo App will send you to the Uber or Lyft app to book.
No more second guessing
Gone are the days of waiting for a bus that isn’t coming. Umo gives you updates right to your phone, such as bus arrival times or unexpected road closures, Umo has you covered. Many bus stations also provide real-time digital signs, alerting you of any changes to your route.
