N-E Ride

Free engineering shuttle available between Lincoln and Omaha

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 and will be asked to scan their university ID as they board the shuttle. Priority for seating will be given to those in the College of Engineering. No reservations are necessary.

Debuting Oct. 23, 2017, two new Arrow Stage Lines buses will serve as the primary shuttles for the college. The updated College of Engineering design will make them easy to spot and include WiFi, a wheelchair lift and other amenities.

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.

Shuttle service begins at 8 a.m., (Mon-Fri) with the last buses leaving at 6 p.m. from Othmer Hall and PKI.

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