Spring Break Ride Home Express Tickets Available on February 3
Starting on Monday, February 3, UK Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will be selling seats on the Ride Home Express Spring Break bus to the Chicago area. For Spring Break 2014, PTS will only operate the Chicago route of the Ride Home Express; the route has a total of five stops along the way.
The PTS Ride Home Express is an express bus service traveling to hometowns and break destinations during the major academic breaks. The service provides an economical and efficient alternative as compared to other means of travel. For students without cars on campus, it provides a lower cost travel alternative and eliminates the need for families to make repeated trips to and from Lexington. Those with vehicles on campus will also benefit, by avoiding putting wear and tear on their car or truck.
Round-trip fares for the PTS Ride Home Express range from $55-$155, with prices varying based on the final destination. 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. One-way fares are available in the office or by calling (859) 257-5757 only..
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.
