Flying home for break?

Stay sustainable this holiday season and consider taking advantage of our UK Transportaion Regional Airport Shuttles. By taking a UK shuttle to regional airport you will not only save yourself from having to pay for extended parking, but you will also be helping the environment by cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.

UK Transportation Services offers free airport shuttles to  Blue Grass Airport (LEX)Louisville International Airport (SDF) and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) for Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks.

What you need to know…

Our airport shuttles depart from and return to gate six at Kroger Field. 

Students who register to take a free airport shuttle will need to use the campus Blue or White Routes to get to Kroger Field on the day their shuttle departs. The Blue & White Routes operate from 6:45 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday.

Upon return from break, students will be able to take the weekend Yellow Route from Kroger Field to campus. It will start running at 9 a.m. on the Sunday after break.

Return trip pick-up locations vary by airport. Please see this page for return trip pick-up information.

If you book a seat on a shuttle and later discover that you need to cancel your reservation, please email UK Transportation Services or call us at 859-257-7202 so that your seat can be made available to someone else.
