UNO Student Government Sponsors Return of MavRide Program
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Student Government is renewing its partnership with Omaha Metro for a third year in order to provide 800 prepaid fare cards to UNO students for the academic year as part of the MavRide Program.
"Being able to provide students with the opportunity to have an affordable ride to campus is a service that Student Government takes great pride in,” UNO Student Body President/Regent Devin Bertelsen said.
Students may stop by the Student Government office, located behind the Fireplace Lounge in the Milo Bail Student Center, to pick up a free pass. Students must present his or her MavCard at the time of visit.
The passes will be available Tuesday, Aug. 14, but will not be active until Monday, Aug. 20. They are available for the fall semester on a first come, first serve basis.
