Medical Center evening van ride procedures
Duke Vans provide supplemental service to Duke bus routes and serve permitted lots after bus service ends. Permit holders in Medical Center locations who need transportation to Duke parking lots after bus service hours should request service from actual pickup locations. When calling, provide the exact pickup and drop-off locations and number of passengers, and be ready at the pickup location

Van Services for the Medical Center operate from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily. Employees can also use Duke buses to reach their destination.
