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. 

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.
