Student Government's Cats Cab

Cats Cab is a late night transportation service designed to enhance the safety efforts of the University and surrounding community in partnership between Student Government and Bluegrass Cab. UK students can ride for free within New Circle Road with a valid student ID. For destinations outside of New Circle, students will pay a discounted fare. The Cats Cab service operates Thursday through Saturday nights from 10 p.m. - 3 a.m.

To accommodate visitors, each person with a student ID can bring one person without a student ID. The Cats Cab will only take students home, to a residential hall, apartment or house.

Students can make a reservation during operating hours by calling (859) 252-CATS (2287), by visiting or by downloading the mobile application from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Students will not be able to ride the Cats Cab without a reservation.

Upon calling 257-SAFE, a functioning auto-attendant (automated menu system) directs people to 5 safety related services from the single 257-SAFE number.
