What is Umo fare capping?
Umo fare capping is a system where riders can load funds into their Umo account (example: a Umo Cash Balance/Stored Value) to pay for each ride on a bus or train. Once the total fares paid reach the price of a day or monthly pass, no additional fare is needed for the rest of the day or month, making travel more convenient and cost-effective.
How does Umo fare capping work?
Umo fare capping rewards you for using stored value (aka “cash balance”) by giving you unlimited free rides for a day/week/month after you have spent the same amount as a daily, weekly, or monthly pass. This pay-as-you-go method removes high upfront costs of daily, weekly, or monthly passes and ensures that you never overpay for transit again.
To see if your agency participates in fare capping and to determine what the set fare limits are, please visit your agency’s website or contact your transit agency's customer service.
