PTS Hosts Annual Fourth of July Fireworks Viewing

Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) invites the campus community to watch Lexington’s Independence Day fireworks display from the top deck of the South Limestone Garage (PS #5). The proximity of the garage to the downtown area offers a close view of the fireworks display while avoiding the crowds and congestion of the downtown festivities.

Anyone possessing a valid UK parking permit may park in the facility free of charge to view the fireworks from the upper level.

Those planning to attend the fireworks viewing may enter from the South Limestone gates to the parking garage only. The gates will open at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 4. The top deck lights will be turned off during the display to enhance the viewing experience.

Alcoholic beverages, grills, open fires, and all fireworks, including sparklers, are prohibited. No animals are allowed, with the exception of service animals. To promote a safe and positive viewing experience for everyone, the University of Kentucky Police Department will be present to enforce these restrictions.

No CATS Bus Service on Friday, July 4

PTS will not offer any bus service on Friday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. This includes the CATS Summer/Break Route, the Medical Center Route and the Kentucky Clinic Route. All bus service will resume normal operations on Monday, July 7.

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.

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.
