Adjustments Made to Fall Bus Service

Modified service to improve capacity, as needed, at key locations across campus

Duke Parking and Transportation Services has made adjustments to several campus bus routes to enhance frequency, effective September 8.

After the fall bus service began, officials with parking and transportation met with Duke Student Government to discuss service adjustments to address customer feedback.

“We worked with a team of student ambassadors to address peak capacity and frequency for our high volume C route buses,” said Carl DePinto, director of Parking and Transportation Services. “We’ve modified service to improve capacity, as needed, at key locations across campus.”

Here are the adjustments:

Additional morning service will be added to the modified C4 class change bus between 9:10am to 12:30 p.m. for five to 10 minute service during the morning rush. In addition, the CCX route has added service to/from Flowers Drive between the hours of 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in order to accommodate evening classes at Trent Hall and the John Hope Franklin Center.

Students traveling between Central and East campuses can use the C5: Central-East route, operating between 7 a.m. – 4:58 p.m. Morning capacity and frequency on the C5 are being monitored and back-up buses will be assigned to the route between 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., as needed.

The C3: Science Drive route will be adjusted slightly to better accommodate key class change periods. The revised service schedule maintains one bus operating a continuous, all-day schedule while another bus will provide peak service during class change periods. Passengers should check the Duke Transit website and Transloc for revised C3 service schedules.

In addition, Duke transit is monitoring the C1: East-West route each day to accommodate peak class change periods.

DePinto said that Duke Parking and Transportation Services will continue to work with the Duke community throughout the year through the Duke Transportation Advisory Committee and other venues to monitor and evaluate transit service.
