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 UNO carpool program assists faculty/staff and students with their daily commute. Benefits of this program: Share Expenses, Reduce Carbon Footprint, Provide Reserved Parking, Decrease Stress, Reduce Permit Prices.
How it Works
Each group receives one virtual permit. Each member can register their own vehicle on the application. Any registered vehicle may be used as the carpool vehicle, as long as that is the only vehicle of the group that is parked on campus at one time.
Carpool permits are restricted to carpool spaces until 5 P.M. After 5 P.M., they can park in general use spaces.
- Current faculty/staff or students with a minimum of two participants per carpool.
- Daily permits CANNOT park in a carpool space.
- Carpool permit holders cannot purchase any other annual/semester permit. If a member elects not to ride with the carpool on a given day, they must purchase a daily/hourly permit, pay $3 after 12:30pm to park in the East Garage or park at Lot 26.
- There must always be 2 or more riders in the vehicle.
The primary permit holder is charged and assigned the permit. This charge will not be processed through payroll or MavLink. Cash or credit only.
Applying for a Carpool/Permit & Space Location
Complete the CARPOOL APPLICATION on OrgSync. Each member must meet eligibility requirements and provide their information on the form.
Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station
An EV Charging station is located on the 1st level, just inside the west entrance of the Pacific Street Garage on Scott Campus.
The rate to charge is $0.50 for up to 4 hours daily. You must have a valid UNO permit to park on campus and utilize the charging station. After 4 hours the rate is $3 per hour.
Please limit the usage of the charging station to sessions no longer than 4 hours per day. Failure to observe these restrictions may subject the vehicle to a violation, along with the higher hourly rate fee. Persons charging electric vehicles on the UNO campus are asked to remove the vehicle when it is charged. This will allow other users to access the EV Charging Station.
UNO Ride Matching
Parking Services offers ride matching through our partnership with MAPA, via registration, and a ride share options search at metrorideshare.org. If a carpool is formed, you could be eligible for a carpool permit and reserved stall.
