Transportation Services offers special seasonal shuttles throughout the year. These include free shuttles to Blue Grass Airport (LEX), Louisville International Airport (SDF) and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) at the start of the fall, semester and spring breaks.

At the start and end of all academic breaks, Transportation Services offers students an alternative way to travel on the Ride Home Express. This charter bus service operates four routes serving 15 cities, within a six-hour radius of UK. Round-trip tickets start at just $55.

All intra-campus buses and shuttles are provided free of charge to UK students, employees and visitors.
