N-E Ride

Free shuttle service for College of Engineering Students

Due to popular demand, beginning September 23, the College of Engineering is increasing its service between Lincoln and Omaha:
  • Friday: We will run 21-passenger minibuses all day from both campuses.
  • Monday: A 21-passenger minibus will make one trip to Lincoln from PKI at 8 a.m. The rest of the day will be the 11-passenger van.
  • Thursday: The 21-passenger minibus will run at 6 p.m. from Lincoln.

Daily Schedule:
Shuttles begin the first day of classes  in August and run Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Vans have Wi-Fi availability.
  • No pre-registration is necessary to ride the shuttles.
  • N-E Ride App: Type "N-E Ride" in the app store to download (Apple or Android). Check for real-time locations of the shuttles and access the schedules via our free phone app.
The N-E RIDE shuttle provides free transportation between Othmer Hall in Lincoln and the Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha for all affiliated College of Engineering faculty, staff, and students. The shuttle also makes a stop at UNMC, to facilitate interactions between the College of Engineering and UNMC partners.

PLEASE NOTE: The college does not guarantee the shuttles have space for every rider per session. Seats are first-come, first serve.
