GoRaleigh to resume fare collections starting September 1

Updated on July 1, 2024

GoRaleigh will resume fare collection on September 1, 2024. July 2024 will serve as a “find your fare” month where travelers can research the best ticket option in preparation for fare collection.

In August, passengers are asked to board the bus using the UMO Mobile app, UMO Card or cash. Passengers will be given a UMO promo code or a free day pass on the bus to help passengers get used to the return to fares.

The rates will be collected from September 1, 2024.

Payment options for passengers include new digital ticketing and a convenient pass for income-qualified travelers to travel for free. Youth (ages 13-18) and seniors (ages 65 and older) will continue to travel for free (as they did pre-pandemic) after enrolling in one of the GoPass programs that allow them to use the UMO digital ticketing platform.

Additionally, the R-Line is also charging a $1.25 per person fare. GoRaleigh Access fares are also resuming. There are reduced fare programs and day, weekly and monthly pass options available and these are summarized in the table below.

GoRaleigh riders will get a new app to manage their payments and passes. The app will also track bus locations and provide timetables. Download Umo from the Apple or Google Play store to learn more about Umo and GoRaleigh.
