Students utilize the bus system to get to, from, and around City and East campuses every day. When asked about the campus bus system, UNL students shared their thoughts about the availability of this sustainable transportation option. Using public transportation has many sustainability benefits, including saving money on gas and reducing carbon emissions.

UNL partners with StarTran to provide campus bus service for the UNL community. To travel between East and City campuses, passengers can utilize routes 24 and 25. Options are also available for transport to Nebraska Innovation Campus.

Effective October 17th, bus passes for bus ridership will return. Faculty and Staff with parking permits can receive a bus pass at no additional cost. If you do not have a parking permit, you may purchase the bus pass separately. More information on the return of bus passes can be found in the following article.

For tips on using the bus system as a method for sustainable transportation and more detailed bus routes, check out UNL’s Parking and Transit services website.

Here are what students are saying about the UNL bus system:

"I am often needing to go to East Campus for my clubs and classes, and the bus system has always been a huge help for getting across the city!” - From a third-year student who uses the bus system on a regular basis

"Having a free and sustainable mode of transport makes me proud to be a student at UNL, and ensures I have a safe, efficient way to get between campuses and around Lincoln.” - From a second-year student who uses the bus on rare occasions, Paul Suder

Some other benefits students mentioned include:

Serves as transportation to East Campus, without having to worry about parking and fees

Provides transportation for out-of-state students

It saves money spent on gas, and buses are time efficient
