Basketball Shuttle to Rupp Arena Starts Friday

Headed to a men’s basketball game at Rupp Arena? Catch a ride on the Rupp Arena basketball shuttle, provided by PTS, starting this Friday, Nov. 16, for the home opener against Lafayette College at 7 p.m.

The Rupp Arena Basketball Shuttle will operate for regular season games while classes are in session. UK employees, students and guests can avoid expensive event parking and game day gridlock. The cost for riding the shuttle is just $3.00 per person, per game. The bus driver will issue each rider a voucher for a return trip. Exact change is preferred.

Shuttles will begin 70 minutes before tip-off, with campus pick-ups at the Euclid Avenue side of the Student Center, Greg Page Laundry and the intersection of University and Huguelet Drives. Return trip shuttles will meet patrons at the Vine Street exit from Rupp Arena following the game.
