Umo App Terms and Conditions 

Effective Date: April 19, 2022 

Thank you for using the UmoTM mobile application. The Milwaukee County Transit System (“MCTS”) may modify the terms and conditions relating to this mobile application at any time by posting revised terms and conditions on our website. By using the app, you agree to accept these terms and conditions, as well as the general terms, conditions and Privacy Policy relating to the RideMCTS website managed by MCTS.  

Mobile Fares 

A mobile fare refers to a type of fare for buses, which is purchased only through the UmoTM mobile app through an iOS or Android device. When you purchase a mobile fare on the UmoTM mobile app you will be notified of the price of the fare before you confirm your purchase. All new, active, and expired fares are shown in the mobile application under “Wallet”.  
The UmoTM mobile fare is valid for travel in the MCTS service area. The travel is based on fare applicability on MCTS buses at the time of purchasing a fare. There are two types of fares: a 105-minute fare (valid on any bus for 105 minutes after purchase) or a day fare (valid on any MCTS bus from the time of purchase to approximately 3 am/at the end of that service day). The mobile fare is valid on the UmoTM mobile app immediately after purchase. You may not start your journey until you have a valid, active fare. The mobile fare is valid when the fare is activated on the mobile app immediately after purchase. 
Your valid mobile fare should be activated as the bus is approaching and displayed clearly on the mobile phone screen to the bus operator when boarding. Bus operators are not allowed to touch or otherwise interact with your mobile device. If you are unable to show a valid fare, you may be subject to a fine or asked to leave the vehicle. If the mobile fare has been damaged or is not readable in any way, the fare becomes invalid and a new one must be purchased. 

The security of your mobile device or fare is your responsibility. If the fare or your mobile device is lost or stolen, MCTS will not provide a duplicate or replacement ticket.
