Expanded Parking on College Way Affects Motor Pool Parking

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 19, 2019) — University of Kentucky Transportation Services is expanding periphery parking along College Way in the vicinity of the UK Motor Pool. This expansion will benefit employees and students, as well as fans attending UK baseball, softball and soccer events.

Ongoing construction and reallocation of existing spaces in this area have resulted in adjustments to Motor Pool operations, which limit personnel who rent vehicles from the Motor Pool from leaving their personal vehicle in the fenced Motor Pool area. However, additional spaces are available immediately adjacent to the facility in the new College Way West parking lot. Individuals with a valid university parking permit (excluding remote tier) are authorized to park in this periphery designated lot.

While overall parking space has been reduced for the Motor Pool, which is operated by the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment on College Way off Alumni Drive, there should be no impact to regular car rental operations.

Cars and a limited number of minivans and SUVs are still available at the Motor Pool on College Way; however, all large vans and trucks have been moved to the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment's Maine Chance Farm at 2349 Turner Place and can be picked up there 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Reservations are still handled through the current on-campus office, but keys for vehicles at the Maine Chance location must be picked up there. 

If you have questions or need more information, please contact the Motor Pool office at 859-257-3119.
