Election Day Bus Schedule Changes

Due to the Election Day holiday and the decreased campus population on that day, some campus buses will operate on a modified schedule on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

The Blue and White Routes (Lextran 14) and the Green Route Connector (Lextran 26) will only operate from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 8. The Yellow Night Route will not be in service on Election Day.

The Pink Route (Kentucky Clinic Shuttle) will run as normal. The Orange Route (UK HealthCare) will be in operation. However, due to the availability of other parking options and anticipated reduced traffic congestion, PTS anticipates less demand for the shuttle. As a result, the shuttle will operate on a reduced service level, with two buses running until 9 p.m., and one bus from 9 p.m. until midnight.

The On-Demand Night Bus will operate on its normal schedule on both Monday, Nov. 7 and Tuesday, Nov. 8. Call (859) 221-7433 to schedule a ride.

All campus buses will resume regular service on Wednesday, Nov. 9. For route and schedule details, visit www.uky.edu/transportation/buses-and-shuttles_campus-shuttles.

As a reminder, all campus routes - as well as the Red Mile (Lextran 15) service frequently used by the campus community - are viewable real-time on TransLoc Rider, UK’s GPS-based bus locating system. TransLoc Rider can be accessed at uky.transloc.com and via the free Transloc Rider Android and iPhone apps.

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.
