Beginning Monday, Aug. 23, 2021 (first day of classes)
Arrival times may vary 5 to 15 minutes.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering partners 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. Students and employees within the University of Nebraska system may use the shuttle. Priority for seating will be given to those in the College of Engineering.
Two buses start at Othmer Hall on City Campus and The Peter Kiewit Institute on Scott Campus in Omaha. From Omaha, they will stop at UNMC as well as I-80 Exit 439.
As well as when classes are not in session due to planned holidays or breaks, the college works with Arrow Stage Lines and other local entities to determine schedule changes due to inclement weather. There are several instances in which the shuttle can be affected:
If the shuttle is not in service due to weather/road conditions, students should communicate with their faculty concerning their ability to attend classes or other responsibilities.
The College of Engineering is now requiring a reservation to board the shuttle. Riders can make a reservation via TripShot at any time prior to the bus leaving its location - even a minute before - if there is a seat available (see instructions below). Don't have access to a smart device? No worries! There are three reservation/boarding options for riding the N-E Ride shuttle:
The College of Engineering follows University of Nebraska-Lincoln protocols (based on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department), including the following for the shuttles:
These precautions will continue to be assessed and updated by UNL as necessary. For more information, visit the UNL COVID-19 site.
