LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 7, 2020) — Certain University of Kentucky bus routes are no longer available now. Beginning Tuesday, April 7, the bi-directional campus Blue and White Routes (Route 14), and the Green Route will be suspended through the remainder of the spring semester and the summer school session. The Orange Route (UK HealthCare) will continue to operate during this period.
The weekend Yellow Route is also not running at this time. These changes were made as a result of significantly decreased ridership during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the university’s subsequent move to online classes.
Campus transit needs will continue to be monitored throughout the spring and summer, and services will be added as the university returns to normal operations.
If you have questions about campus transit services, have special campus transportation needs or if you need additional information, please email UK Transportation Services or call the office at 859-257-5757. For complete details concerning modifications to campus parking, transit services and employee permit credit procedures during the spring 2020 interim period, please visit this page.
