Welcome Wildcats!

Whether you plan to live on campus or off, Transportation Services can help you travel to, from and around. As a UK student, you have a wide variety of mobility options, everything from personal vehicles to bikes and beyond.

Students who do plan to bring a vehicle to campus and those who regularly commute to and from will need to purchase a parking permit, as all on-campus lots require a permit. The University has both student lots and employee lots scattered throughout campus, as well as several parking structures. Learn more about your parking options here. 

However, unless you're commuting to campus from outside the City of Lexington, bringing a car to campus is not a necessity. There are plenty of sustainable commute choices. Transportation Services supports students in making sustainable choices through a selection of innovative transportation programs, including:

Campus Bus Routes
Free Citywide Transit
Bike Programs
Ride Share Options

If you do plan to drive to campus, please take a moment to review our parking maps.

Do you need help determining the best transportation options for your specific situation? Ask for help through our free commute planning service.

UK also offers students a chance to get involved in the transportation decision making process. Student transportation fees, established through the UK Student Government Association, enable students to have a say in how their transportation-related funds are allocated. Learn more about the Student Transportation Council and consider making your own proposal.

We're glad you're going to be a Wildcat! Please take a few minutes to explore our site and learn about all of the transportation-related programs available to you. If you have questions, please contact us and we'll be happy to share more information.
