Regional Airport Shuttles

Thanksgiving Break 2019

Are you planning to fly home -- or anywhere else -- during academic breaks?

Transportation Services offers free airport shuttles to  Blue Grass Airport (LEX)Louisville International Airport (SDF) and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) at the start of Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks. We also offer free return trips from the airports to campus on the Sundays before school starts.

Students who register to take a free airport shuttle will need to use the campus Blue or White Routes to get to Kroger Field on the day their shuttle departs. The Blue and White Routes operate from 6:45 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday.

If you need to catch a 6 a.m. airport shuttle from Kroger Field, (which is earlier than the Blue and White Routes start running), UK Transportation Services will pick you up and transport you to Kroger Field. See this page for the 6 a.m. pick-up schedule, as well as return shuttle pick-up locations at each of the airports.

Sign-ups are now available for the 2019 Thanksgiving academic break.

To register, visit this page.

If you're travelling during times or dates when free airport shuttles are not offered, consider signing up for Ride Amigos, a free web-based ridesharing program offered through UK Transportation Services. Learn more about the program here.
