DISCLAIMER FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRAKSA
While our first priority is to provide a safe ride home for students who are in immediate need, it is our expectation that you act in accordance with the guidelines* of the program. By doing so, you will help maintain the availability of 475-RIDE for students in need.
- The UNL student must provide the dispatcher with valid ID number at time of call and present NCard to the driver.
- The UNL student must request transportation only to their official and registered residence. This means that the student must have their preferred Lincoln home address registered with the university.
- The UNL student must call to cancel a cab if the need for the cab no longer exists. Any student failing to cancel a ride and is marked as a “no show” will receive one warning before being moved to the unfunded list.
- The UNL student may only use the service in unexpected or emergency situations, not for regular transportation purposes.
