How to Get Around

To/From the Airport: Denver International Airport (DEN) is a major airline hub in the United States. Since the airport opened in 1995, it has consistently won readers’ choice awards from publications like Business Traveler Magazine. The airport offers free Wi-Fi access in public areas and a diverse array of dining and shopping choices. Follow the links below to explore Denver airport information and the many DEN transportation options available, including the Airport Rail, DEN SkyRide (airport bus), airport shuttles, cabs, and more.

AIRPORT RAIL TO DOWNTOWN
At a cost of only $9 each way, travelers can now take the airport rail from DEN to Denver Union Station and vice versa. The 23-mile ride takes approximately 37 minutes. The rail line serves eight total stations, including the new Westin Denver International Airport Hotel, connected to the airport itself.

AIRPORT SHUTTLES, BUSES & CABS
Located northeast of downtown Denver, a cab or DEN airport shuttle ride puts you in the heart of the city in about 25 minutes. The city’s public transport system, Regional Transportation District (RTD), also operates five bus routes under the frequent airport express bus service called skyRide. View more information on Denver Ground Transportation.

RIDE SHARING
Use your favorite app to catch a ride. Lyft and UberX pick up at Passenger Pickup on Level 4, while UberBLACK picks up at Ground Transportation on Level 5, Island 2 or Island 5.

 

Downtown: Whether on foot, by car, by bike, or by light rail, there are plenty of options for getting around Denver. Looking for Downtown Denver transportation to get around the 16th Street Mall? Denver offers free public transportation with the Lightrail. Want to tour the city on a bike? B-Cycle makes Denver even more bike-friendly.

WALK
Denver is a delightfully walkable place. Every important city venue can be reached on foot, from the historic Brown Palace Hotel to the new award-winning Denver Art Museum to the versatile Pepsi Center.

16TH STREET MALL RIDE
Called the MallRide, this free hybrid vehicle scoots up and down the 16-block tree-lined retail core of downtown Denver, also home to hotels, restaurants, office buildings, residences and public spaces. Hop on at any intersection on 16th St. between Civic Center Station at Broadway near the Colorado State Capitol (200 E. Colfax Ave.) and Union Station on the west end.

BIKE
Denver is one of the country’s fittest cities, and this is especially true where the skinny rubber meets the road. A web of hundreds of miles of dedicated bike paths weaves through Denver and its edges. You can, for example, ride from Cherry Creek State Park in southeast Denver to Cuernavaca Park on the northwest side of downtown.

PEDI-CABS
Rickshaws, pedal-cabs, bike-taxis-no matter what you call them, these mountain-bike-style tricycles pulling passenger cabs are the slickest way to get around downtown and LoDo, especially on game days.
