UK Transportation Services’ Customer Service Center is Open Extended Hours Saturday, June 20 and 27

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 16, 2020) — University of Kentucky Transportation Services’ Customer Service Center has reopened to walk-ins from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. For your convenience, most of their services are available online or by telephone, and should still be used as a first option. However, Transportation Services does understand that there is sometimes a need for in-person office visits due to the complexities of individual situations or the urgency of need.  

The Customer Service Center is located in the Press Avenue Garage (PS #6), at 721 Press Ave. Please note that the health and safety of customers and staff are the highest priority and therefore instituted special office protocols during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have been put in place. If you do need to walk-in, please enter the facility through the garage entrance, rather than the front door, to allow for social distancing procedures. Signs are on-site to direct customers to the correct entry and exit doors. In addition, customers are asked to wear protective masks and to maintain at least six feet distance between each other when waiting in line. If you are feeling unwell, please choose our convenient phone or online options instead.

To minimize wait times and personal contact, a walk-up customer express pick-up window is available for those who have purchased their permits online or over the phone and need to pick them up in person.

In addition, UK Transportation Services will offer extended hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 20 and 27 to assist customers in getting parking permits prior to July 1, the start of the 2020-2021 permit year. The Saturday hours are intended to assist UK students and employees who are unable to visit the office during regular business hours. 

Services such as annual parking permit sales and renewals as well as single day permit sales are available online during certain times of the year. If you have questions or need more information, please call the office at 859-257-5757, visit online and follow UK Transportation Services on Twitter @UKParking.

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.

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.
