RVTD rolls out 'UMO Pass' next week, a new way to pay

The UMO Pass will allow passengers to load stored value onto their account in order to pay for bus fare.

MEDFORD, Ore. — The Rogue Valley Transportation District will roll out a new way for passengers to pay for fare beginning next Monday. The UMO Pass (pronounced "You-mo") will allow people to load money onto their account that they can use to pay for fare.

"Stored value provides passengers with flexibility and allows them to pay as they ride," RVTD said in a statement. "Instead of loading passes onto their UMO account passengers can load ‘stored value,’ as low as $5 at a time."

RVTD said that it is also starting "fare capping," ensuring that people who use the UMO Pass will never pay more than the daily or monthly cap no matter how many times they ride. Once a passenger has paid bus fares totaling the daily or monthly cap — $6 for day or $56 for the month — they won’t be charged for any additional rides that day or month.

"This pay-as-you go alternative eliminates any guesswork a passenger has to make to determine whether a daily or monthly pass will be worth the price, providing the benefit automatically as they ride," RVTD said. "Unlike traditional passes, if a passenger rides less than the daily or monthly cap, they are only charged for the fares they have used."

The current fare options will still be available once UMO Passes become available. Passengers can still buy Day Passes, 20 Ride Passes, and Monthly Passes, in addition to paying for a single ride.

"For a limited time, passengers interested in loading stored value can receive a free ‘UMO Pass’ card. Passengers do not need a new UMO pass card to use stored value. Stored value and fare capping will be available to all TouchPass card and mobile app users starting April 5th," RVTD said.

Passengers can register their UMO Pass account, ensuring that they can easily transfer their account balance to a new card if they lose their card.
