Skip the search for a parking spot and take a city bus for FREE instead. Your MavCARD is also a Metro Transit bus pass. No special activation is required. All you need to do is swipe your card to ride.
Metro accepts all active students, faculty and staff MavCards on any route, any day. Students are considered active if they are currently taking classes or registered for the upcoming semester. Moby service routes are also included.
UNO is a bike-friendly campus. Bike racks are conveniently placed in close proximity to every university building. A network of low-volume streets, streets with bicycle lanes and major trails surround our university.
Chain slip? No problem. There are bike fix-it stations on our Dodge and Scott Campuses. The stations come equipped with virtually every tool you might need to make a repair - as well as a pump.
If you don’t own a bicycle, you have a convenient alternative.
You’ll find B-cycle stations on Dodge Campus and Scott Campus. There are stations throughout the city, including the Dundee and Aksarben neighborhoods. Heartland B-Cycle is a bike sharing system that allows you to get a bicycle when you need one, and return it safely to any station.
A pass enables you to check out a bike as many times as you like. You can bike for one hour with no additional charge.
B-Cycle passes vary in cost from $6 for a 24-hour pass, to $10 for a monthly pass, to a $57 discounted annual pass for students.
On-campus shuttles run between Dodge Campus, Scott Campus and Center Campus.
In Fall 2017, Parking Services will change from the current shuttle routes to new express routes getting you between campuses faster.
During Fall 2017 and Spring 2018, UNO will provide limited shuttle service to Center Campus Lot 26 (Baxter Arena), the lot just west of the creek. No permit is required to park in Lot 26. With the addition of more on-campus parking, shuttle service to Lot 26 is set to end in April 2018.
Emergency Ride Home Service
This UNO program offers you a free taxi ride in the event of an emergency. The program is for registered campus commuters who travel to UNO via bus (MavRIDE), ride-sharing, bike or walking.

Interested? Download the registration form and submit it to Parking Services, in the Eppley Administration Building, Room 107.
UNO Ride Sharing
Save money and gas by carpooling to campus with a fellow Maverick.
Beginning July 1, discounted carpool permits will be available for student or faculty/staff carpools of two or more riders. Carpool permit holders also get a reserved space in one of the UNO garages.
Don’t have anyone to carpool with? Parking Services can help you find a match! Fill out the ride matching form on MavSYNC to get started.
Parking On Campus
Parking Services is rolling out new, flexible permit options for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The Park Omaha app or new garage kiosks can be used to pay for hourly or daily parking in the West Garage (near Maverick Village on Dodge Campus) and the new Pacific Street Garage (across from the Peter Kiewit Institute on Scott Campus).
You can also purchase, in advance, discounted daily virtual parking permits on the Parking Services website. Annual and semester permits are also available.
Parking Services is moving to a virtual permit system, meaning no more hangtags. After you purchase your semester or annual permit online, you’re immediately ready to park on campus.
All students who purchase an annual or semester virtual permit - including residents and graduate teaching assistants - will now pay for their permit through Mavlink. After purchasing a permit on the Parking Services website, the cost will be added to their Mavlink balance.
