Parking Alternatives
You may park your vehicle at the Smith Warehouse South lot, on Maxwell Avenue or Parking Garage 1 (PG1), at the intersection of Flowers Drive and Yearby beginning at 3:00 p.m on Friday afternoons before games. Your Blue Zone permit will raise the entrance and exit gates at PG1 on Trent Drive, near the entrance to the Duke Clinics, and at the Smith Warehouse lot.  Please do not pull a ticket at PG1, and park your vehicle on the roof of the garage if possible.  You must move your car out of PG1 and the Smith lot before 2:00 p.m. Sunday.

Special parking arrangements are in effect for the Duke-UNC game on Thursday, November 10.  Blue Zone customers are requested to make every effort to remove their vehicles from the Blue Zone by 5:30 p.m. on November 10.  The Science Drive Garage, accessible from Highway 751 (Cameron Blvd.) is the alternate parking location for this game.
Transit Services
The CCX transit route passes Anderson/Yearby for convenient access on Saturdays and Sundays. As always, keep Van Services (919-684-2020) in mind if you require transportation back to your residence hall.

Vehicles must be removed from the Blue Zone by 6 a.m. on football game days.  In accordance with the Duke event policy, vehicles not removed from, or returned to, the Blue Zone within the required timelines, and vehicles parked in restricted areas will be fined $210; $100 for the fine and $110 for towing.  Subsequent violations during the academic year may result in suspension of parking privileges for one calendar year.  In order to retrieve a towed vehicle, visit Duke Police at 502 Oregon St. at night and on weekends, and Parking Services at 2010 Campus Dr. on weekdays.
