Umo Digital Fare Payments

BC Transit launched the Umo (pronouced "you-mo") electronic fare system in the Cowichan Valley Regional Transit System on Thursday, November 16, 2023.  Umo introduces contactless payment methods and new fare products that improve the transit experience by allowing riders to pick the best options for their lifestyle and travel habits.  New payment methods include the Umo Mobility app and a reloadable Umo card, both now accepted on Cowichan Valley local and interregional transit routes.  Cash will continue to be accepted.  At a future date, BC Transit plans to provincially enable onboard payments with debit and credit cards.  BC Transit UMO fare vendors in the Cowichan Valley can be found at bctransit.com/cowichan-valley/fares/wheretobuy. For more information on Umo, including video tutorials and frequently asked questions, please visit bctransit.com/umo
