The MavRide Pass, started by the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s student government in February, 2011 is reaching its’ milestone of 250,000 passenger trips.

During the past 13 semesters, students, faculty and staff have use of free unlimited rides with the Metro Transit.

Due to the success of the partnership between Metro Transit and the university, UNO invested resources into four alternate transportation options that are good for the community and personally. Those four include:

B-Cycle: is a bike sharing program available on both campuses, Dodge and Pacific. You can also find them in Dundee neighborhoods and downtown Omaha.

ZimRide: is a private ride sharing social network with free access.

Zip Car: is available as a car sharing program with discounted access to UNO students.

Emergency Ride Home Service: is a free taxi ride in an event of an emergency using alternative transportation methods to get to UNO.

Today, UNO will hold in HPER from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. a sustainable transportation services to learn more about their environmental friendly travel options.

Representatives from each program are available to discuss or answer any questions about their services.
