Duke Van Services

Duke Van Services

Duke faculty, staff and students may request van rides during certain hours and within a specific boundary through Duke's Parking and Transportation Services.

Duke Vans provides free, on-demand vans transportation from dusk to dawn (5:00 p.m. - 6:45 a.m.) for Duke University students and employees when/where Duke Transit is not in service. Rides are provided on demand to and from most Duke campus facilities open for use at the time of the ride request. Once a request has been made you will receive a notification via phone call or text. The notification will inform the requestor of the nearest pick up point for the requested location. 

Request a ride by calling (919) 684-2020. Visit Parking & Transportation Services for schedules and service boundaries.

Duke Van Services does not duplicate existing Duke Transit routes or schedules.

Charlene’s Safe Ride, a private transportation service, offers rides for a fee. You can pay with your DukeCard FLEX account. Call (919) 309-SAFE (7233) or learn more at Charlene’s Safe Ride.
