The UMO system offers a convenient and efficient way to manage your transit fare payments. Here are the key features and how to use them:

  • UMO Mobile App allows for easy fare payment, account management, and ride tracking.
  • UMO cards can be used as a physical alternative to the mobile app, offering the same functionalities.
  • Both the UMO Mobile App and cards support fare capping to ensure maximum cost-effectiveness for regular riders.
  • Accounts can be managed online through the Passenger Portal, where riders can check balances, reload fares, and review ride history.
UMO Fare Capping

Fare Capping uses our electronic fare system, Umo, to limit the maximum a rider must pay on any given day. Fare Capping ensures you never pay more per day or per month than the amount of an all-day pass in a single day or a 31-day pass over a month.

  • Once you have paid a total of $3 ($1.50 for Reduced Fare) in a single day, the system will cap your fare and let you ride fare-free the rest of the day. You'll never pay more than the cost of an all-day pass!
  • Fare capping is enabled on our local fixed route for day passes $3 and 31 day passes $30.
  • Fare capping is enabled on our regional connectors for 31 day passes only at this time at $50.
  • Paratransit fares cap at $60 in a one-month period.

For example, a rider boards the Route 410 from Anacortes to Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon. They use the Umo system to pay $1 on the Route 410 and then pay another $1 when they transfer to the Route 40X at March Point. At Skagit Station, when they transfer to the Route 205 and pay another $1 in fare, the system automatically credits them with a day pass.

They have paid $3 in fares and a day pass is $3. That rider will no longer be charged for any rides that day.
