Shuttles

Complimentary shuttle stops are located in The Hill and Meadow. These shuttles will drop patrons off at the new Shuttle Depot, where patrons will be directed by Guest Services to either the South or North Grandstand entrance.

Complimentary golf cart shuttles will be available to any patron who requires mobility assistance in the Shuttle Depot or the Handicap parking rows. These shuttles will pick up and drop off at the South Grandstand entrance.

There will be no vehicular traffic to the South Grandstand entrance.

Prepare to Walk

Due to construction, the pedestrian paths are different than normal. Please allow additional time to walk to the admission gates.

From the Shuttle Depot, patrons will follow a designated pedestrian walkway to the South or North admission gates. Guest Services will be available to direct patrons to the correct grandstand entrance, based on their ticket type.

Patrons parking in the permit-only paved parking rows will enter through the South Grandstand Entrance, as usual.

Admission Gates

Admission gates have been redesigned for efficiency. For ease of scanning at admission gates, it is recommended that patrons download tickets to their smart phones instead of printing at home.

Scanning on Smart Phone: Select mobile ticket at purchase. Two weeks from your scheduled ticket date, you will receive a notification that the mobile tickets are ready for download. Add the tickets to your Apple or Android Wallet. Upon entry, hold your mobile device up to the scanner at the gate for easy entry on race day.

If you need to share a ticket, use the transfer button to share digitally through e-mail or text. DO NOT screenshot the image.

Scanning from Printed Ticket: If you selected Print at Home, from your desktop open your purchased ticket in a separate browser and print as an 8.5x11 document. You will scan this ticket at the gate.

DO NOT screenshot or resize the image

PARKING OPTIONS DURING RACING

Free car parking with frequent shuttle stops.

Gate 1: Recommended for all public parking. | Gate 2: Recommended for all permit parking.

Free, public parking will be available in The Hill and Meadow. Patrons will have access to complimentary shuttling to the track. Customer service representatives will be at each shuttle stop to help with questions.

Paved parking lot

New this Spring, all paved parking rows will be for permit parking only. A limited number of paved row parking spaces will be available each day for patrons to purchase.

In March, patrons who have purchased race day tickets for the Spring Meet will be sent a link to pre-purchase a parking space in the Green Lot. These parking spaces will be limited each day and are expected to sell out. Free parking will still be available in The Hill and Meadow each day and do not require reservation in advance.

Row of parked cars

Handicap parking with complimentary shuttle service to the South Grandstand Entrance is available. Enter Gate 1 to access.

Handicapped shuttle

Uber/Lyft/Taxis, personal pick-ups/drop-offs and private car services (sedans and SUVs) will be directed to Ride Share, located adjacent to the Shuttle Depot. Due to the construction footprint, there will be NO vehicular access to the North or South Grandstand Entrances for drop-off/pick-up.

Keeneland entrance sign

Parking spaces in the Bus Lot are for commercial buses and must now be purchased in advance by calling the Ticket Office at (859) 254-3412.
