MavRIDE Bus Pass
MavRIDE offers free rides on the Metro Bus System to current faculty, staff and students. Your MavCARD is activated with the bus pass. MavRIDE can be used any time on any route, but must only be used by the UNO faculty/staff or student on the MavCard.
Moby rides are included in the MavRide Program. The MavCard will work the same way on Moby as it does on a Metro Bus. Before using Moby, a MavCard holder will need to meet eligibility requirements and become certified for the service.
The Omaha Metro bus route is available online.
