PTS Begins Spring Break Ride Home Express Sales

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 1, 2017) — Beginning at noon today, UK Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will be selling tickets for the Spring Break edition of its Ride Home Express bus service. Established in 2010, the Ride Home Express offers an alternative way for students to travel to their hometowns and other destinations during the major academic breaks.

The Spring Break Ride Home Express will leave campus Friday, March 10, and return Sunday, March 19. For the 2017 Spring Break edition of the Ride Home Express, PTS will only operate the Chicago route, which serves five stops. Fares for the PTS Ride Home Express range from $55-$155 for round-trip rates; one-way fares begin at $30.

Ride Home Express is open to both students and employees. Tickets are available via the Parking Account Manager. Riders interested in one-way fares must pay for their seats in person at the main PTS office, located in the Press Avenue Garage, at the corner of Press and Virginia Avenues. The office is open 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

PTS recommends registering for the trip as soon as possible. Space is limited, and seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

PTS can provide transportation for Ride Home Express riders to and from Commonwealth Stadium. Riders interested in this option simply need to submit the Ride Home Express Shuttle to Commonwealth Stadium request form at least two business days in advance of the shuttle’s departure.
