How to Reload Your Umo Card

Umo cards are designed for repeated use, please remember to hold onto your card and reload it again and again.

To get and use a reloadable Umo card:

1. Visit a Umo fare product vendor and pick one up for free. Umo fare product vendors are listed under Where to buy on your transit system’s Fares page.

View vendor list

2.  At the vendor location, make your initial fare product purchase to ensure your new Umo card is activated.

 

When you’re ready to travel:

1. Get your Umo card ready prior to stepping on the bus.

2. Aboard the bus, tap your card to the Umo digital validator.

3. Look and listen for the validator’s confirmation signals. A checkmark and single beep means your fare has been accepted.

Then when your card needs to be loaded again, choose if you would like to add a fare product at a vendor location, through ca.umopass.com, or over the phone with the support of the Umo Customer Service Centre at 877-380-8181.
