Shuttle Facilitates Research Collaborations between UNL, UNO, and UNMC

To facilitate engineering collaborations between University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), Omaha (UNO) and Medical Center (UNMC), a shuttle makes daily stops Monday-Friday, at the following Lincoln and Omaha locations with daily schedule at http://engineering.unl.edu/n-e-ride/:

  • Othmer Hall, UNL City campus (Vine St. between 16th and 17th St).
  • Interstate 80, Exit 439; at the Ride and Share parking lot located behind Walmart.
  • Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI), UNO Pacific campus; circle drive in front of the main entrance.
  • UNMC bus stop just west of 42nd and Dewey St.

Two shuttle vans, one leaving from Othmer and one from PKI, depart every two hours starting at 8 am. The last shuttle leaves each location at 6 pm. The approximate travel time between Othmer Hall in Lincoln and the UNMC campus is one hour and 30 minutes. Each van can accommodate 10-12 passengers, as space is available, and has Wi-Fi. While you do not need to pre-register, you may be required to show your student/faculty/staff ID card.

This new shuttle service will enhance student and researcher collaborations, while reducing their impact on their environment in support of UNMC’s LiveGreen initiative.
