Summer Transit and Parking Changes

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 4, 2017) During the summer months, University of Kentucky Transportation Services implements some changes to campus transit and parking operations due to the reduced campus population.

The campus Blue, White and Green Routes will operate on their modified break schedule of 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 8 - August 18, with the exception of Monday, May 29 and Tuesday, July 4.

The Orange Route (UK HealthCare Route) and the Pink Route (Kentucky Clinic Route) will continue to run their normal schedule.

Kentucky Wildcab does not operate during the summer months.

More information about all the bus routes, including maps and schedules, can be found at www.uky.edu/transportation/buses-and-shuttles_campus-shuttles. Campus buses can be tracked in real-time using the TransLoc Rider app on iPhone and Android devices, allowing for users to plan for delays caused by traffic, accidents or inclement weather.

Summer parking control will begin Monday, May 8. While all lots will remain on control, permit holders will experience more flexibility in student parking areas. Most university student parking lots will be controlled for any valid permit during the summer months. The exceptions are the R6, R16, R17 and R18 parking areas, which will remain on control for their specific permit types.

Summer parking control maps can be found at www.uky.edu/transportation/parking-info_parking-maps. Please note that some lots are changing designation on July 1.
