BC Transit’s Umo (pronounced “you-mo”) electronic fare system is now live in Kitimat.

Umo introduces contactless payment methods and new fare products.

BC Transit will have information available in the Lower City Centre Mall entrance on Thursday, May 9, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. See their post below for more information.

From the BC Transit website:

“New Payment Methods

New payment methods include the Umo Mobility app and a reloadable Umo card. The Umo Mobility app is free in the Apple App and Google Play stores. Once downloaded, riders create an account to purchase and manage their fare products. When ready to travel, riders open their app to display a dynamic QR code that serves as their fare product. As riders board the bus, they present their app’s QR code to a new onboard validator. The Umo app also provides riders with additional tools to help them plan their trip.

Alternatively, riders have the choice of using a reloadable Umo card. A Umo card can be picked up for free from a BC Transit Umo vendor and is designed for repeated use. Cards can be continually topped up with fare products through a vendor, online at ca.umopass.com, or through Umo’s customer service call centre at 877-380-8181. When boarding, riders tap their card at the new onboard validator. Riders are recommended to register their card by creating a Umo account online or through the Umo customer service call centre using the unique number on the back of their card. Registering a Umo card will safeguard fare products in the event a card is misplaced. A list of BC Transit Umo fare vendors is available on each transit system’s website.”


In Kitimat, Umo reloadable cards are available at:

  • District of Kitimat municipal offices at 270 City Centre (third floor of City Centre Mall)
  • Tamitik Jubilee Sports Complex, and
  • Riverlodge Recreation Centre.
