PTS Offers Special Holiday Parking Passes

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 1, 2016) — University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is offering an alternative parking choice to those UK students concerned about leaving their vehicles out in the elements during the upcoming winter break. With the holiday parking pass program, PTS is providing students with the chance to store their vehicles in the South Limestone Garage (PS #5), located next to Kennedy’s Wildcat Den, for the duration of the break. This is the sixth year for the program.

To obtain a holiday parking pass, students should visit the PTS office, located in the Press Avenue Garage, at the corner of Press and Virginia Avenues, or the South Limestone Garage office, located on the first floor facing Limestone. Passes are available only to students with a valid UK parking permit; the passes will be issued at no cost, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning today, Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016, with a maximum of 200 passes issued.

Vehicles may be parked on the fourth or fifth floor of the South Limestone Garage beginning Monday, Dec. 12. Students should access the garage by pulling a visitor ticket from the ticket dispenser. The holiday parking pass must be clearly displayed on the dashboard.

Upon returning to campus, students should bring their holiday parking pass to the South Limestone Garage office, to be exchanged for an exit voucher.

Vehicles not removed by Tuesday, Jan. 10, will be charged the hourly parking rate starting at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10, through the exit time and date.
