Mission: Working together to promote and support safe, reliable, affordable, and efficient public transportation in Nebraska.


Public transportation in Nebraska is a vital part of the solution to the state’s economic, energy, and health care challenges through providing an alternative in congested urban areas and serving as a lifeline to rural communities. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns.
