BIG E Transit

Continuing to build on the long-standing partnership between Eastern Kentucky University and KRFDC, Foothills Express is the provider for campus transit services. Students, faculty, and staff will still be able to traverse the Campus Beautiful with convenient times and stops free of charge.

The EKU service connects with the Richmond deviated fixed route at the EKU Wallace Building which allows for transfers. The deviated-fixed route will deviate for the general public with and without disabilities. A stop can be requested by calling Dispatch at 859/624-3236 at least 48 hours in advance.

Big E Transit offers six (6) bus routes to service the needs of the campus community including popular campus routes Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and evening routes Sunday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.  New for 2016-17 is a Sunday route from noon until 6 p.m. that includes stops at the Richmond Centre, Wal-Mart and Vickers zone Z parking lot and an express van with service to and from the Vickers Lot Monday through Friday.
