Beginning in July, taking a Lextran bus will be the cheapest option for University of Kentucky students, staff, and faculty members. 

Lextran Board Chair Jeff Fugate hopes it will change the way people think about commuting.   "I remember when I was a freshman here back in the 90's, I didn't have a car," said Fugate.  "If couldn't walk there, I didn't go to it.  And this will really open up our city to the students and then, at the same time, it gives the faculty and staff a way to get to and from work and maybe get out of their cars."
