JessLex is a regional bus service connecting the communities of Nicholasville and Lexington allowing people to shop, access healthcare, visit family and friends or to do personal business. JessLex is accessible and is also open to the public. JessLex is a sponsored program of Blue Grass Community Partnership (BGCAP) and Bluegrass Ultra-Transit Service (BUS). It is is part of a growing web of regional transportation services provided by BGCAP with the support of the Federal Transit Administration and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Office of Transportation Delivery. The people of Central Kentucky now have more affordable access to regional communities and transportation hubs.
JessLex is a Deviated Fixed Route. In simple terms this means that if you are at an address within one half (1/2) of a mile of our Nicholasville or Lexington Bus Stops, JessLex will either pick you up at that address or drop you off at another location within one half (1/2) of a mile along the JessLex Route.
A deviation must be scheduled a minimum of 24 hours in advance by calling the reservationist at 1-800-456-6588. All Route Deviations are for people with and without disabilities. Tell the reservationist you want to schedule a deviation for JessLex.
All deviations are scheduled during a short time frame when the bus is normally scheduled to be at the closest stop to your requested deviation. It is important you are ready at the given time as JessLex has a schedule to maintain. Make your reservations early as only two (2) scheduled deviations per loop are available. This allows your bus to run in a timely fashion and be more predictable.
