UMO App
BUY YOUR FARE

How do I download the new app?
Download the Umo app on your smartphone from either the iOS App Store (for iPhone devices) and Google Play Store (for Android devices). 

How do I create an account? 

  1. Open the app and tap Get Started.

  3. Tap Set Up Account.
  4. Set up your account with a mobile phone number, email or username and password. 

After you register your mobile device and create a Umo account, you can then: 

  1. Buy a fare – Buy fares and add cash balances. You can purchase a fare using My Wallet in the app. You can pay through the app using a credit card or debit card only.
  2. Get directions – Plan your trip anywhere, at any time, and find your next bus with your own preferences such as arrival time, departure time, fewest transfers, less walking.
  3. Track your bus – Access estimated bus arrival info data for timely trip planning.

How do I buy a fare?
NEW!
Once you buy a fare through the app, it activates immediately! So only buy the fare when you’re ready to use it.
WisGo offers two types of fares:

  • $2 – 105-minute fare – The fare is valid for 105 minutes instead of 90 minutes, giving you some extra time from purchase to validation.
  • $5 – Day fare – The fare allows you unlimited rides within the day that you purchase them.

Does a fare expire?
Yes. Fares expire within 105 minutes (for a 105-minute fare). A day fare expires at 2:59 a.m. 

Can I add my MCARD funds to the app?
No. You may continue to use your MCard balance until early 2023.

When can I use the fare I purchase from the app?
You must use it immediately upon purchase. It is best to book your trip only when you are ready to use your fare.

How do I purchase a group fare?
The group fare purchase option is not currently available. 

Can a parent load a credit card into an account?
Yes. A parent can log into their child’s account on the mobile app and load a credit card into their child’s account. 

What do I show the bus operator?
When you board the bus, share your Show Code screen in the wallet on your mobile app.

How do I purchase a transfer?
Transfers are automatically included in whichever fare you buy. Purchasing the 105-minute fare allows you to ride as many buses as you'd like within 105 minutes. Purchasing the day fare allows you to ride as many buses as you'd like until 2:59 a.m. 

Can I receive a refund?
No. MCTS does not offer refunds on tickets. Please use all tickets purchased on the RideMCTS app by April 28, 2022.
