Continuing to build on the long-standing partnership between Eastern Kentucky University and Kentucky River Foothills Development Council, Foothills Express is now 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. Route 1 - Maroon, Route 2 - Grey, Route 3 - Bronze, Route 4 - Black, Route 5 - Orange, and Route 6 - Green.

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.
