'Tis the Season: Free Holiday Shopping Shuttle for Students

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 28, 2016) — Holiday shopping can be stressful. University of Kentucky Parking and Transportation Services (PTS), together with the Student Government Association, is providing a free transportation option to ease some of that stress and simplify the holiday shopping process for students.

The free shuttle service will operate between campus and Fayette Mall on Sunday, Dec. 4, and Sunday, Dec. 11, 2016. The shuttle will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each Sunday, with daily campus pick-up times of 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Passengers will be picked up at the north side of the mall, near the entrance to Macy’s, at  noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. and returned to campus.

Although the shuttle is free, reservations are required. To schedule a pick-up, students should submit a ride request through the form found here: www.uky.edu/pts/buses-and-shuttles_seasonal-shuttles_holiday-shopping-shuttle. Ride requests must be submitted no later than noon Friday, Dec. 2, or Friday, Dec. 9, respectively.

A PTS representative will follow up via email to confirm the reservation details.
