LEXINGTON, KY. (March 16, 2020) — With the onset of Spring Break, University of Kentucky Transportation Services will adjust parking and transportation related services to reflect the needs of the reduced campus population. Decisions regarding service levels during the subsequent two-week suspension of in-person instruction following Spring Break (Sunday, March 22, through Sunday, April 5) will be communicated in the coming days.

Campus Bus Routes The Orange Route (UK Healthcare) will continue to run on a normal schedule. However, the weekday campus Blue, White and Green routes will operate on a modified schedule from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning Monday, March 16, through Friday, March 20.

The weekend Yellow Route will not be in service on Saturday, March 21. It will resume on Sunday, March 22, operating from 9 a.m. to midnight.

Kentucky Wildcab and Paratransit Kentucky Wildcab will not operate on Thursday, March 19, through Saturday, March 21. Weekday Paratransit services will also not operate during spring break, Monday, March 16, through Friday, March 20. 

Parking Permit Control Changes From Saturday, March 14, through Sunday, March 22, all employee lots will remain controlled for permits as normal. Most student parking areas will require any valid permit with the following exceptions: R2, R7, R17, R18, R19, R29, R30 and R34, which will remain restricted to lot specific permits only. All lots will resume normal enforcement beginning 5 a.m. Monday, March 23. Please refer to individual lot signage to confirm control times.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
