Pilot parking reservation program for UK basketball games launches

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - ParkMe and LEXPARK have teamed up to launch a pilot parking program that will both ease traffic and make finding a parking spot easier for UK basketball fans.

Drivers can pre-pay and reserve parking spots for home games ahead of time. The price for a reservation is $15 and fans won’t have to deal with the hassle of finding a parking spot close to game time.

Right now, the reserved spots are located at the Victorian Square Garage on West Short Street. The program was only announced two days ago and LEXPARK officials say 70 people reserved a spot during that time.

Those who used the service say it was easy and convenient.

“With the rain, well I said ‘I can walk over without getting too wet,'" says Bob Lewis, who reserved a parking spot before the game. "Of course now it’s not raining, but it's the same price as I usually park, $15.”

This pilot program will also be available for the upcoming games against Louisville, Mississippi State and Tennessee.
