Campus Transit

Campus buses are a great option for getting around quickly and reliably. They don't operate on a set time schedule. Instead, they run on a headway system with continuous, frequent service. There's no need to learn complicated or confusing bus schedules—simply find the nearest bus stop and the next bus is never far away.

All campus routes are viewable real-time on the TransLoc app, UK’s GPS-based bus locating system. TransLoc can be accessed at and via the free TransLoc app for Android and iPhones.

For off-campus Lextran routes, use or the mystop smartphone app to view real-time location.

Please see this page for information about bus service during emergencies or severe weather.

How to Ride Campus Buses

  • Buses are only permitted to stop at designated bus stops. Please don't attempt to flag down the bus at other locations.
  • Look for the route name displayed on the front of the bus.
  • Wait to board until riders have finished exiting the bus.
  • To indicate that you need to depart the bus, pull the cord above the window or say "Next Stop" to alert the driver; be sure to do so with enough advance notice for the driver to safely come to a stop. Allow the bus to come to a complete stop before you stand to exit. Exit at the rear whenever possible.
  • If you have any questions about your trip, ask the driver.
  • If you lose something on the Blue, White, Green or Yellow routes, please contact Lextran at 859-253-4636. If you lose something on the Orange Route, please email
