Project Updates:

September 2022 – Nebraska continues its work to enable and provide public transit agencies with the digital tools increasingly necessary for managing public transit.

Some of the current projects and activities include the following:

  • Statewide trip planning
  • KCTS expansion
  • North Fork Area Transit facility and expansion
  • Hastings transportation study
  • Cedar County Transit National RTAP grant
  • Lancaster County Health Equity Coalition
  • Nebraska Olmstead Transportation workgroup

  • Nebraska Safety Center Advisory Board
  • Grand Island transit development plan
  • Intercity bus planning

February 2021 – Over the past year, the Mobility Manager has been a huge resource for agencies and those in need of transit.

  • MO Rides
