Whether on foot, by car, by bike, or by bus, Denver makes it easy to get from place to place.
Once you’ve arrived downtown, take a ride on Denver’s 16th Street shuttle. 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. The MallRide runs just a short walk from the Colorado Convention Center.
SkyRide is the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) convenient, affordable bus service to and from Denver International Airport (DEN). Catch frequent SkyRide buses throughout the RTD service area at bus stops and at many Park-n-Rides, every day of the year. One-way SkyRide fares are just $9, $11, or $13 depending on your boarding and destination locations.
In addition to traveling to and from the airport, the RTD offers fast, hassle-free service with more than 125 bus routes throughout the city. All RTD buses, including the free MallRide, and light rail vehicles are accessible for mobility aids, such as wheelchairs, electric scooters, segways, walkers, and crutches. Bus and light rail operators are trained to assist passengers with disabilities boarding or exiting the vehicle. For more information, contact RTD Customer Care at 303-299-6000 or fill out their online form.
Taxis are readily available at the airport, Colorado Convention Center, Cherry Creek shopping district, and major hotels. The flat rate from the airport to downtown is $51 plus a $3.75 gate fee.
For those rolling into town on their own set of wheels, finding parking in The Mile High City is a breeze. There are approximately 44,000 off-street parking spaces throughout downtown Denver, including a 1,000 space onsite covered parking garage at The Colorado Convention Center. Visit the Downtown Denver Partnership’s website for an interactive parking map.
Biking & Walking
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. Denver’s bike sharing program, Denver B-Cycle, offers more than 800 new, shiny red Trek bicycles, available at 84 stations around The Mile High City. All access passes cost only $9 for 24-hours.
In addition to biking, Denver is a delightfully walkable place. Every important city venue can be reached on foot. Visitors can hoof it over the Millennium Bridge connecting the bustling 16th Street Mall with the relaxing Riverfront Park in the Central Platte Valley neighborhood.
