Parking Changes Take Effect Saturday

As announced in early April, University of Kentucky Transportation Services will implement the expanded tiered parking areas on Saturday, July 1.

Effective on Saturday, July 1, the Rose Street Garage will be limited to E2 and R2 core permits, the Sports Center Garage and Complex Drive will restricted to E7 and R7 core permits, and the Prall Street Lot and Seminary Drive area will be controlled for E28 core permits. Please note that summer permits will no longer be valid on Complex Drive starting on July 1.

The E2/R2 and E28 core areas will be controlled for their specific core permit only from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday; the E7/R7 core area will be restricted to that permit type only 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Woodland Avenue Lot is now an intermediate employee lot; the lot has 109 spaces. This change in designation occurred in May.

Employees interested in a core area may submit their name to the appropriate waitlist through the Transportation Services Customer Account Manager.

The 2017-2018 expanded tiered parking approach will undergo continual evaluation, with the outcomes informing decisions about options going forward. By introducing this approach on a small scale, university officials will be able to closely monitor the efficacy of the program and to evolve the system to best meet the needs of campus.

No Campus Bus Service on July Fourth

In observance of the Fourth of July holiday, University of Kentucky Transportation Services will not operate bus service on Tuesday, July 4. This includes the Blue and White Routes (Lextran 14) and the Green Route Connector (Lextran 26), as well as the Orange Route (UK HealthCare Route) and the Pink Route (Kentucky Clinic Route).

All bus service will return to normal operations on Wednesday, July 5.

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 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.
