Transportation Services Offers Holiday Travel Options

As the end of fall semester approaches, UK Transportation Services is offering two simple holiday transportation options for the campus community: the Ride Home Express and the Winter Break shuttle to Blue Grass Airport.

The Winter Break Ride Home Express will leave on Friday, Dec. 15 and return on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018. Transportation Services will operate three routes, with a total of 15 stops. The final destinations include the metropolitan areas of Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; and Cleveland, Ohio. Fares for the Ride Home Express range from $55-$155 for round-trip rates; one-way fares begin at $30.

Transportation Services can provide transportation for Ride Home Express riders to and from Kroger Field. Those interested in this option simply need to submit the Ride Home Express Shuttle to Kroger Field request form at least two business days in advance of the shuttle’s departure.

For more information on the Ride Home Express, including a list of fares and route maps, visit the Ride Home Express page or the Ride Home Express Frequently Asked Questions.

Transportation Services is also offering a complimentary shuttle service from campus to Blue Grass Airport prior to the break.

The shuttle will operate Tuesday, Dec. 12 through Friday, Dec. 15, with daily campus pick-up times of 6 a.m., 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Students should plan to leave campus at least two hours prior to take-off.

Although the airport shuttle is free, reservations are required. To schedule a pick-up, students should submit a ride request through the form found here: www.uky.edu/transportation/buses-and-shuttles_seasonal-shuttles_airport-shuttles. Ride requests should be submitted at least two business days in advance of departure.

A Transportation Services representative will follow up to confirm the pick-up time. Students are responsible for their own transportation back to campus.

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.
