Does the institution have a bicycle-sharing program or participate in a local bicycle-sharing program?:

A brief description of the bicycle sharing program:

Two of our main campuses (South and Fort) are an active part of the local bike-sharing program, B-Cycle. Students are offered free membership passes at least once a year and are able to get discounted passes year-round.


Does the institution participate in a car sharing program?:

A brief description of the car sharing program:

Yes, MCC uses the Metro O! Rideshare and offers information on our website on how to find and participate in the local rideshare program


Does the institution offer preferential parking or other incentives for fuel efficient vehicles?:

A brief description of the incentives for fuel efficient vehicles:

We have EV charging only spots for electric vehicles on our Fort and Elkhorn campuses, which have publically available electric vehicle chargers. These chargers are located near buildings, making them preferred spots. The College has ample free parking, which reduces the effectiveness of incentives for fuel-efficient vehicles.

Does the institution have one or more Level 2 or Level 3 electric vehicle recharging stations that are accessible to student and employee commuters?:

A brief description of the electric vehicle recharging stations:

MCC installed 2 dual-port Level 2 chargers on the Fort Omaha Campus in the Fall of 2017 and one dual-port Level 2 charger at our Elkhorn campus. Two additional Level 2 chargers and 1 DC fast charger will be available in the Fall of 2021 as a part of our new Automotive training building. All of these chargers can be found on the Chargepoint network and are open to students, staff, and the public.

Does the institution have incentives or programs to encourage employees to live close to campus?:

A brief description of the incentives or programs to encourage employees to live close to campus:

Does the institution have other programs or initiatives to encourage more sustainable modes of transportation and/or reduce the impact of student and employee commuting?:

A brief description of other programs or initiatives to encourage more sustainable modes of transportation and/or reduce the impact of student and employee commuting:

The College offers free bus passes to all credit students, Re-Entry participants, Veteran's Upward Bound participants, and the GAP students. This bus pass can be used at any time and for any purpose by the individual, it is issued to. More information can be found at www.mccneb.edu/passtoclass.

The Pass to Class program also includes the Emergency Ride Home program, which offers taxi rides to individuals in the Pass to Class program who need to leave immediately and cannot wait for the bus. This provides a support system for those who are concerned that switching their car for the bus means they won't be able to get where they need to be. Program details can be found at www.mccneb.edu/erh.
