Begins July 1
LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 16, 2015) – University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto, along with Lexington Mayor Jim Gray and Lextran Board Chair Jeff Fugate, announced a major new partnership between UK and Lextran on Tuesday morning.
Effective July 1, University of Kentucky students, faculty and staff may ride any Lextran bus route free of charge by showing their valid Wildcard ID, as part of the new U-PASS program.
Lextran buses travel throughout 21 different city routes, which extend throughout and beyond the UK campus into the Lexington community. The program includes all Lextran routes, both on- and off-campus, allowing UK students, faculty and staff to travel to, from, and around campus while also accessing the city. The program constitutes a 1-year, $160,000 agreement, with the opportunity to renew.
