Fare capping is a benefit for passengers using stored value (a "Cash Balance") for fare payment that any agency using the Umo System can implement. Passengers will receive free rides after a set amount of fares has been paid during a specific period of time. These limits (“fare caps”) may be set by journey or on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- The Daily fare cap period starts at the beginning of the service day for the agency, typically midnight but may vary for a specific agency and ends at 1 minute prior to the start of the next service day.
- The Weekly fare cap period starts on Monday and ends on Sunday.
- The Monthly fare cap period starts on the first calendar day of the month and ends on the last day of the month.
- To determine 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.
