Ride the Basketball Shuttle to Rupp Arena

The final stretch of the SEC basketball season is here! For those looking for a way to get to men's home basketball games that does not involve pricey event parking or game-day gridlock, Parking and Transportation Services has the perfect solution. UK students, faculty and staff can avoid the hassle by catching the basketball shuttle to Rupp Arena.

UK Athletics is co-sponsoring the shuttle service, which will run from campus to Rupp Arena for all remaining regular season men's home basketball games. Employees and students who wish to ride the basketball shuttle may park for free behind the Greg Page Apartment laundry. The round-trip cost is $3 per person. Exact change is preferred.
