Starting August 15, 2022, CATS riders will have two contactless pay options: new reloadable CATS x UMO pass cards, or a smartphone app.
CATS riders can download the Umo app by searching for "Umo Mobility" in the iOS or Android app store. Riders can then set up their account, purchase passes, or add a balance to their account using a credit or debit card. The UMO app also has functions to help riders track their bus and plan trips.
Riders who would prefer a reloadable pass card can receive their CATS x UMO pass cards at the CATS Terminal. Riders can then load their pass cards and buy passes online at UmoPass.com, or they can visit participating local vendors to load their pass cards in person. See list of vendors here.
When paying with cash, "change" will be issued in the form of a "change card" which can be used towards fare on future rides.
Transfers are not valid on the issuing route. Transfers are valid for 2-hours from the time of purchase.
- Transfer for second bus $0.25
