Duke Parking and Transportation Services

August 9, 2023

Duke Parking and Transportation Services is committed to the safety, security and convenience of all guests, faculty, staff, students and visitors. The Director of PTS retains the discretion and authority to make exceptions to regulations, suspend enforcement, and otherwise exercise control of vehicles parked on properties owned or leased in whole or in part by Duke University (hereinafter referred to as the "campus").

In a blow to local transit advocates, duke parking and transportation officials have decided not to allow a portion of a proposed light-rail line to pass through campus. The move will effectively kill the project, which was a joint venture between GoTriangle and the city of Durham. Read more here.

Guests who attend Duke men's basketball home games are encouraged to park in the designated Visitor Parking areas, which are located in GC Lot, H Lot, PG1 (Medical Center Garage), and the Edens C Lot. All visitors are required to display a valid visitor parking permit when parked on the campus. Daily visitor parking permits are available for purchase from Duke PTS for departments to distribute to their guests.

For guests with mobility impairments, a free shuttle is available to transport from Duke Medicine Circle Parking Garage at 302 Trent Drive. The shuttle escorts guests to the Duke Medicine Pavilion entrance.

Guests may also use the Bull City Connector(link is external), which is a fare-free hybrid-electric bus service that connects downtown Durham with Duke University and medical facilities. All buses served by Duke Transit are accessible to persons with disabilities.
