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.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
