LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - ParkMe and LEXPARK have announced a pilot-parking program that will ease congestion and simplify parking for fans of the NCAA's all-time winningest basketball program - The University of Kentucky.

The service allows drivers to pre-pay and reserve spots for home games, with testing to begin at the Victorian Square Garage located at 350 West Short Street. It will go into effect for four consecutive games starting on December 21st, 2013.

ParkMe lets drivers reserve parking online, ensuring cheaper spaces and removing the hassle of finding parking on game day. To reserve, simply go online to, pick the date of the game you wish to attend, and purchase a $15 spot with your credit card. To use your parking reservation, simply drive up to the entrance and flash your mobile receipt or printed proof of purchase. A guaranteed parking spot will be waiting for you.

"LEXPARK is committed to providing fans with a seamless parking experience," says Gary Means of LEXPARK. "We're always looking for ways to improve parking in Lexington, and ParkMe's real-time technology and reservation functionality allows drivers to find available spots at the touch of a finger."

Drivers will be able to reserve a parking spot for $15 during the pilot for the following 4 games:
12/21/13 - UK Vs. Belmont,
