Spring Break Parking and Transit Changes
During Spring Break, demand for student parking and transportation is greatly reduced. As a result, Parking and Transportation Services does not control many of the student areas for permits during this period and reduces bus service.
In general, both single use commuter lots (C6 and C8) and all residential lots - with the exception of R17 (Wildcat Coal Lodge) - are not controlled for permits beginning Saturday, March 15. All employee lots will remain on control, including the joint use Employee/Commuter lots. The lots not controlled for permits will still be monitored for other parking violations to include, but not limited to, parking in fire lanes, on yellow lines, and in disabled accessible parking. All lots will resume normal control on Monday, March 24.
The Medical Center and the Kentucky Clinic Routes will continue to run their normal schedule, and one CATS bus will operate on the Summer/Break Route. Summer/Break Route service will operate from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., to accommodate those who remain on campus during break. All other CATS and Lextran campus bus service will cease during Spring Break.
The On-Demand Night Service will run on Sunday, March 23, with service beginning at 7 p.m. All other campus bus service will return to normal operations on Monday, March 24.

Phase Two of Parking Impact of Stadium Expansion Project Delayed
The second phase of the Commonwealth Stadium expansion and renovation project, initially scheduled to begin during the week of March 17-21, has been delayed until the conclusion of spring semester. The second phase is slated to eliminate 374 spaces along the west side of the stadium, in order to accommodate the expansion of the stadium’s plaza area.
A total of 673 parking spaces will be permanently eliminated as a result of this project. The remaining 658 parking spaces used for construction and staging will be returned to the University’s parking inventory in the fall of 2015.
Employees and students who park in the Commonwealth Stadium vicinity are encouraged to allow extra time in their commute and to familiarize themselves with parking alternatives in the area. A campus parking map can be found at www.uky.edu/pts/parking-info_parking-maps.
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.
