KU on Wheels Fixed Route Buses
An easy way to get around is to use KU's bus system. All KU on Wheels buses are lift equipped for wheelchairs, and some buses are low floor. While you are on campus, you may board any KU on Wheels bus for free. If you regularly park on campus with a handicap placard or license plate, you will need to register your placard/license tag with the Parking & Transit office. Bring in your placard or license tag registration, along with the state issued ID card so that we can make a copy to keep on file. There is no cost associated with this registration.
The Parking & Transit office is located in the Allen Fieldhouse Parking Garage on level 3 in the northeast corner of the building. To enter the garage, push the green ticket button, pull the ticket and the gate will lift. There are accessible stalls in the northeast corner of the garage on all levels. If you make a hard right turn immediately when you pull into the garage, you'll drive around to the accessible stalls and the office entrance.
