Free engineering shuttle available between Lincoln and Omaha

The N-E RIDE shuttle is back and better than ever!

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering is partnering with Arrow Stage Lines to offer free bus service between Lincoln and Omaha each weekday for students, faculty and staff, while classes are in session.  Any students and employees within the University of Nebraska system may use the shuttle, with priority given to those in the College of Engineering.

Two buses designed for the College of Engineering will start at Othmer Hall on City Campus or the Peter Kiewit Institute on Scott Campus in Omaha. From Omaha, they will stop at UNMC as well as I-80 Exit 439. Capacity for the buses is 40 riders.

Shuttle service begins at 8 a.m., (Mon-Fri) with the last buses leaving at 6 p.m. from Othmer Hall and PKI. Free wi-fi is available and no reservations are necessary. The service is available to those with active IDs from UNL, UNO or UNMC.  Riders will be asked to scan their university ID as they embark. 

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