Due to popular demand, the staton at 19th & S St, located on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's City Campus, has been expanded from 8 docks to 12 docks. The increased capacity will ensure there are enough available docks to meet user demand.
The station is situated behind the Eastside Suites right across the street from the University Health Center and was the fifth busiest station in the BikeLNK system this month. The station has seen increased traffic this semester making the expansion to 12 docks necessary to help maintain the optimal balance of full to empty docks at all times. 19th & S is the second station on campus to benefit from an expansion project. The station at 14th & R, right outside the Nebraska Union on City Campus, started as an 8 dock station but the station size was increased to 17 docks after it showed more ridership than any other station in the BikeLNK system. We are excited for the expansion at 19th & S and hope it gets more students, faculty, and staff riding.
Utilizing BikeLNK is a quick & socially distanced way to get around the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's campuses! There are 3 stations on City Campus, 2 on East Campus, and 1 on Innovation Campus. We suggest looking on google maps biking directions or pick up a one of Great Plains Trails Network
's Lincoln Trails Map at a local bike friendly business like the Hub Cafe
to plan your route between campuses. There are a few ways to go by trail to get between City and East Campus or you can take low volume, bike friendly streets like Y St.Common BikeLNK Routes around the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Campuses

We took the trips to calculate these approximate ride times on our classic bikes. You may take a little bit longer or go a little more quickly, but we are confident it will take you under your allotted free hour of ride time. If you take an e-bike it might not be faster but you will arrive a little less tired than on a classic bike. Locate an e-bike on the BCycle App
and once you turn it on it will help assist as you pedal up to 17mph.
