Denver has plenty of transportation options that make it easy to get around the city.
The best source of information about transportation is the Visit Denver Transportation Guide. Here you can find everything you need to know about Denver International Airport, rental cars, bus schedules, Denver’s lightrail system, and more.
Getting Around Without A Car
If you’re flying in, you can take a train directly from the airport to city. The train ride takes about 40 minutes, costs $10.50/person, and will drop you off at Union Station. From Union Station, you can access additional local and regional transportation services, such as light rail, regional and local buses, Amtrak rail service, taxis and the free 16th Street Mall shuttle (MallRide) and free downtown MetroRide buses that provide access to most downtown hotels.
