College Freshman

Transportation: I have a car, so I have never had to take public transportation.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are busses that run all the time on campus that students have free access to in order to get back and forth from east and city campus. There are also busses that will take you around Lincoln.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation is mediocre. The busses are not accountable and stop running after 6pm.

UNL students really appreciate the free bus pass from the University, but that alone doesn’t make the public transportation system work any better. Students can also take advantage of the free nightly taxi service the University provides to students who party a little too hearty. Most of all, students rejoice in UNL’s central location, which puts students within walking distance to most of their lifelines.

If you’re from out of state or it’s spring break and you want to get out of Nebraska, then be warned: The Lincoln airport is nothing spectacular. Always check the Omaha airport for better prices and more flexibility because it’s offers more flight departures than Lincoln Municipal.
