Bull City Connector
The Bull City Connector is a fare-free, hybrid-electric bus service that connects downtown Durham with the Duke University campus. The route provides direct access to Duke and includes stops along Main Street and Erwin Road. The service also includes a stop at Durham Station, the city's transportation hub with public bus service and within walking distance of the American Tobacco Campus and the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Bull City Connector is also ideal for bicyclists, who can ride to a Connector stop and take their bike to campus by using a bike rack on the front of the bus.
The easiest way to get to games using the Bull City Connector is to get off at Main Street and Swift Avenue (Eastbound) or Main Street and Iredell Street (Westbound). Take Swift Avenue towards East Campus. It will turn into Broad Street. Follow Broad Street until you reach the intersection of Broad Street and Perry Street. Jack Katz Stadium will be at this intersection. Click here for a map to show you where to go. Camera Policy
