Routes to UNO
As a general rule, use the Keystone Trail as a north/south route to campus.
It is also wise to ride through neighborhoods and less busy side streets as much
Commuting from the
West/Northwest End of Town.
If you are coming from the West end of town, Maple Street is the best street
to travel. Maple street has a wide shoulder from west Omaha through I-680,
and then has 2 east bound lanes and 2 west bound lanes. Ride in center of
the right hand lane. Always use sidewalks if they are available instead of the street. Most motorists are aware that bicycles have a right
to be in lanes of traffic, and will simply go around you. You can then
access the Keystone Trail at approximately 84th street and head south towards
UNO. Exit the Keystone Trail at Pacific Street and ride up the (very wide)
sidewalk and enter Elmwood Park.
Commuting from the East end
If you are coming from the East end of town, Pacific street is good west
bound street to use. Just enter Elmwood Park and head north toward campus.
