Spring Break Ride Home Express Deadline Approaching
It’s hard to believe March is next week… which means that Spring Break and the Spring Break Ride Home Express aren’t far away!
PTS is now accepting reservations for the Spring Break edition of the Ride Home Express. We have made a few changes to improve the service for everyone! For Spring Break, PTS will change its ticketing process, offering online sales for most groups, as well as providing streamlined destinations based on past ticket sales.
For the first time, UK students are able to register and pay for their trip via the Web by logging on to the Parking Account Manager with their Link Blue ID.
For the Spring Break edition of the Ride Home Express, PTS will operate four routes, with a total of 16 stops. The final destinations include the metropolitan areas of Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; and Nashville, TN. One of the 16 stops for the express bus service is Elizabethtown, KY. After Spring Break, PTS administration will evaluate the routes and make a decision as to add additional routes for the coming school year. For individual route maps, visit www.uky.edu/pts/buses-and-shuttles_ride-home-express.
PTS recommends registering for the trip as soon as possible. Space is limited, and seats will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The deadline for online purchase is Thursday, March 3. For more information on the Ride Home Express, including a list of fares, visit the Ride Home Express page or the Ride Home Express Frequently Asked Questions.
