NCAA Final Impact on April 2 Bus Service, Parking
With the Wildcats playing in the NCAA Basketball Championship this evening, Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) would like to alert the campus community to parking and bus service changes in place for Monday, April 2.
The large Student Center lot and the Alumni E parking lot will be unavailable beginning at 1 p.m. on Monday, April 2. Vehicles already in the lots will not need to relocate at this time, but no vehicles will be able to enter after 1 p.m.
Parking Structure #5, located next to Kennedy Book Store on South Limestone, will be unavailable for retail customer parking. The facility closes at 10 p.m.
Absolutely no after-hours access will be permitted.
PTS will attempt to operate the CATS Yellow Night Route as usual, unless circumstances dictate otherwise. Should the bus be unable to navigate the scheduled route, PTS will modify the route by turning down Patterson One-Way and picking up the normal route again on Rose Street (bypassing South Limestone north of Avenue of Champions). PTS will also attempt to operate the CATS Bus On-Demand Service – scheduled to begin at midnight - as normal.
Neither the Colt Trolley nor the Cats Cruiser operate on Monday night. However, Lextran routes passing through the campus area are likely to have detours or other impacts to service.
All CATS buses are on Cat Tracker, a real-time GPS-based bus locating system. Cat Tracker can be accessed at http://uky.transloc.com, via the free TransLoc Android, BlackBerry and iPhone apps and through QR and SMS codes located on each bus stop sign.
Both Lextran and PTS will be communicating any changes to service through their respective Twitter streams, found at www.twitter.com/lextran and www.twitter.com/ukparking. Lextran will also be posting updates on their Facebook page.
PTS will also be broadcasting updates via 1700 AM (WQKH 253), in the event of an emergency.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to tune into 1700 AM (WQKH 253) to hear campus parking and transportation information. The station broadcasts 24 hours, 7 days a week.
