Although sponsored by ISS, any Centre student may ride the FREE Saturday afternoon shuttle bus that runs from behind Campus Center to Kroger and Walmart.

This shuttle operates year-round (including over summer and winter breaks); however, there is no service on New Year’s Day, Independence Day (4th of July), or Christmas Day. The shuttle may have limited or no service if there is inclement weather that negatively affects safe road conditions. Since the shuttle is free and available on a first-come, first-serve basis, it is recommended that you plan your trip accordingly. Please see the image below for the CentreTran schedule (times are approximate).

Centre College Airport Shuttle to/from LEX or SDF

Centre College offers an airport shuttle service to or from Lexington Blue Grass Airport (LEX) and Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF).

The airport shuttle is for Centre students only (no family/friend guests). Shuttle dates are set around the beginning and end of classes as well as the established breaks on the academic calendar. Students should make every effort to schedule flights on the set dates or make arrangements on their own. Remember that you are responsible for loading and unloading your bags.

Centre pays for a portion of the airport shuttle cost with the student’s fee being placed on their student account. If you schedule a shuttle yourself, the entire fee will be your responsibility and paid directly to the driver. Note that additional fees may apply for late requests, cancellations, or additional baggage (for more than 2 checked bags).

Please refer to the appropriate Information Handouts on the Forms page to learn more about the airport shuttle schedule and policy information. Check your Centre email for the airport shuttle service survey sign-up as administered by SLO.
