LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 19, 2020) — Do you need a ride home for winter break? Tickets for BreakShuttle are now on sale.
BreakShuttle is a charter bus service offered in cooperation with University of Kentucky Transportation Services. The buses are scheduled to depart from campus for semester break at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 24.
The charter service provides safe, direct and reliable trips during UK's academic breaks, taking the hassle out of getting home with routes to Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Merrillville, Naperville, Dayton, Columbus and Medina.
BreakShuttle is working closely this year with the University of Kentucky to have their charter service follow COVID-19 guidelines and to provide students and staff with the safest and most comfortable trip possible. Buses will be limited to 50% capacity, so purchase tickets early.

BreakShuttle buses depart and arrive between Bluegrass Community Technical College and Kroger Field, close to the entrance of the Green Lot.
The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals.

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.
