This is the first integration of bicycle parking into a University of Kentucky parking garage.

The Rose Street Garage location is centrally located to serve nearby residence halls as well as the Don & Cathy Jacobs Science Building. Additionally, drivers using a multi-modal approach to campus transportation may choose to park their vehicles in the facility, and store their bike on the hanging racks, allowing them to only park once during their daily activities.

A complete map of campus-area bicycle lanes and facilities, including rack locations, may be found at www.uky.edu/pts/parking-info_parking-maps. Students and employees who notice a need for more bike parking in a particular area of campus may submit a request via www.uky.edu/pts/help-and-resources_forms.

PTS invests over $200,000 annually in campus bicycle infrastructure, education and encouragement projects, many of which are guided by the leadership of the Bicycle Advisory Committee.
