LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 11, 2022) — During spring break each year, University of Kentucky Transportation Services adjusts parking and campus bus services to reflect the needs of a temporarily reduced campus population. Below are details concerning these changes.

Parking Permit Control From Monday, March 14, through Sunday, March 20, all employee (E) lots will remain on control as normal.

Most student lots will be adjusted during this time to require any valid UK parking permit. The following lots are exceptions: R2, R7, R17, R18, R19, R29 and R30. These lots will continue to be controlled for those specific permits.

Hourly parking payment is required as normal for all visitor pay lots and campus parking meters during spring break.

Student lots will resume normal enforcement beginning on Monday, March 21. 

Campus Bus Routes The Orange Route (UK Healthcare) will continue to run on a normal schedule throughout spring break. 

The campus BlueWhite and Green routes will operate on a modified schedule of 6:45 am to 6 p.m. Monday, March 14, through Friday, March 18. All routes will return to normal operating hours beginning on Monday, March 21. 

The weekend Yellow Route will not be in service on March 12-13, and on March 19, but will operate from 9 a.m. to midnight on Sunday, March 20.  Normal operating hours of noon to midnight will resume on Saturday, March 26. 

Kentucky Wildcab Kentucky Wildcab will operate as usual on Thursday, March 10, but will not be in service March 11-12 or March 17-19. Normal Wildcab operations will resume on Thursday, March 24. 

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
