Safe and Healthy Campus Transportation

MCC aims to get more students and staff biking around campus with the Green Bike Program now at the Fort Omaha Campus as a free, environmentally friendly and healthy way to get around campus.

Students and staff at MCC's Fort Omaha Campus have free access to seven bright green bikes to pedal among campus buildings. Twenty-four new bike racks were installed on campus, and eight sharrows were painted on campus roads.

The green bikes are available free of charge on a first-come, first-serve basis to get around the Fort Omaha Campus only. Riders can visit www.mccneb.edu/green/greenbikes.asp to access the bikes' lock combination. Bicycle helmets are available for check out from the Library at no cost to participants in the Green Bike Program.

The Green Bike program is made possible through a partnership among MCC, Live Well Omaha, the Community Bike Shop and Green Street Cycles. The bikes were painted by students in MCC's Auto Collision Technology Program.
