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.

 

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.
