Nebraska law defines "a ridesharing arrangement" as the “carrying of more than one, but not more than 15 passengers by motor vehicle, either regularly or occasionally, with or without compensation but not for profit, and incidental to another purpose of the operator.” Ridesharing arrangements include carpools, vanpools, and buspools (NE Rev. Stat. Sec. 60-2501et seq.).
Special taxes, licensing, or registration. A ridesharing motor vehicle with seating capacity for no more than 15 people is not considered a bus or commercial vehicle for purposes of equipment requirements, rules of the road, or registration, nor may any municipal entity impose a special tax on or require a special license for the vehicle.
State vehicles. Vehicles owned or operated by state or local agencies may be used in ridesharing programs for public employees. Participants must pay actual costs of using the vehicle in the arrangement.
Omaha/Council Bluffs area. Employees in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metropolitan area can participate in the MetrO! Rideshare Program. The program provides ride matching, information on alternatives to commuting by car, and guaranteed rides home to participants. Go to http://www.mapacog.greenride.com.
