Travel around Omaha

Free bus service is provided to students from Scott Residence Hall to the UNMC campus Monday-Friday (and to Lincoln for dental scholars on Fridays). Shuttles run daily in the morning and afternoon to get scholars to and from UNMC campus. Additionally, the resident assistants have vans that are used to provide transportation to stores, clinicals, small group outings, religious activities when requested, and other incidental needs.

Omaha also has a bus transit system that operates throughout the metroplex and is conveniently accessed from Scott Hall. Several cab companies are also available for students’ use. Use of the public transportation system is not provided by the SMDEP, but is used at the students’ expense.
