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.

For specific trip and route information, visit BreakShuttle’s official UK page and sign up for email alerts and discounts.

BreakShuttle buses depart and arrive between Bluegrass Community Technical College and Kroger Field, close to the entrance of the Green Lot.

If you have questions about the service or need more information, please email UK Transportation Services or visit its website.
