New Stadium Blue Lot Bus Shelter to Open Monday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 27, 2016) On Monday, Oct. 31, University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will open its newest bus shelter, located in the Commonwealth Stadium Blue Lot adjacent to University Drive. The new shelter will serve as a stop for the Blue and White Routes (Lextran 14), the Green Connector Route (Lextran 26) and the Yellow Night Route.

Campus buses will begin utilizing the new shelter at 6:45 a.m. Monday, Oct. 31, effectively moving the Commonwealth Stadium bus stop from its current location at the President’s Pavilion.

“The completion of this shelter and the move from our temporary stop location will enable PTS to offer more efficient bus routes to our riders,” said Lance Broeking, director of Parking and Transportation Services.

Also on Oct. 31, the Green Route will change slightly to add a stop at Bluegrass Community and Technical College’s Academic Technical Building. This stop will replace the shuttle service between the designated overflow parking areas along Wildcat Court and the Green Lot.
