Duke Vans

Duke Vans provides free, on-demand van transportation from dusk to dawn (5:00pm - 6:45am) for Duke University students and employees when/where Duke Transit is not in service.

Rides are provided on demand by calling (919) 684-2020 to and from any Duke campus facility that is open for use at the time of the ride request.  Depending on conditions of weather, time of night, special events, volume of calls, and other situations beyond our control, the response times may vary. 

Duke Vans is a courtesy service intended to transport passengers between campus and residential destinations or back to passenger vehicles parked in remote lots. Duke Vans do not transport passengers to parties, social or retail venues such as bars, restaurants, laundromats, or other commercial destinations.  Drivers conduct checks upon arrival for valid Duke identification.

Pick Up transportation is provided to riders from on-campus locations only. 

Drop Off transportation is provided to any on-campus location, as well as off-campus residences within the defined boundary area.  Drop offs at commercial locations are not permitted.

Medical Center Evening Van Ride Procedures
Duke Vans provide supplemental service to Duke Transit routes and serve permitted lots after bus service ends. Vans do not duplicate the bus route while buses are in service. Permit holders in Medical Center locations who need transportation to Duke parking lots after bus service hours should request service from actual pickup locations below. When calling, provide the exact pickup and drop-off locations and number of passengers, and be ready at the pickup location.
