Your Ticket to Ride

There are several ways to purchase tickets to ride any Metro service – Riders can purchase paper tickets and tokens or use Umo with a smart card or smartphone app to pay their fare when they board.

Fare purchases (paper tickets, paper tokens, Umo app purchases, Umo card reloads) are nonrefundable and cannot be redeemed for cash.

With Umo, riders can board and manage accounts with a smartphone app, or board with Umo smart cards and manage accounts online.

Umo cards are available for in-person purchase at Metro’s office, at ticket vending machines, and online. You can also reload Umo cards at ticket vending machines at ORBT Stations and the Westroads and North Omaha Transit Centers.
