Nightlife Transit is launching transportation services in the Omaha area on June 5th. A late-night shuttle service which will provide transportation service to Omaha’s popular entertainment districts. Shuttles will run every Friday and Saturday night from 9pm-2:30am.
The shuttles will be just in time for many of the summer festivities including concerts, College World Series, and other events. The goal of Nightlife Transit is to help keep drunk drivers off the road, alleviate parking issues in some of the entertainment districts, and to encourage alternate motives of transportation.
Riders may purchase a one-time pass for a small fee or opt for a monthly pass. The route has yet to be finalized but will circulate through Downtown, Midtown, Blackstone, Dundee and Benson.
Destination partners such as Brickways Brewery in downtown Omaha, which has an incredible line of locally brewed beers, will be a featured stop on the route. Orpheum Tower, a destination partner, will offer free Nightlife Transit passes to new residents as move-in gifts.
The Nightlife Transit Shuttle is powered by a blend of biodiesel from the Omaha Biofuels Cooperative. Used cooking oil from local area restaurants is converted into fuel by Omaha Biofuels and is then used to power Nightlife Transit’s shuttle.
NIghtlife Transit is owned by Eric Burns, an Omaha entrepreneur. Life experiences such as his time as a project manager for a federal study of the public perception of transportation in Atlanta, GA as well as owning Main Street Bar and Grill in Plattsmouth, NE have given Eric the insights of both the transportation and nightlife industries. Eric has partnered with Scott Faith who will hold the title of Chief Operating Officer, Ryan Lynch from Creighton University and Sabastian Hunt from Year of the Startup are also key members of the operation.
