Getting here from Denver International Airport


A public bus, the RTD-Denver SkyRide AB ( travels between Boulder and the airport every hour. When you arrive, proceed to the terminal and pick up any luggage on the level 5 carousels.  The AB bus usually departs at about 20 minutes past the hour from island 5 outside the terminal. The driver will put your suitcase in a luggage bin underneath the bus – tell him you are traveling to the Baseline stop.

The fare is $13 ($6.50 seniors 65+ with i.d.).  Ask for a transfer if you wish to take the local bus half a mile further toward the Boulder Inn.  Fares are payable only in cash and the drivers cannot give change – but fellow riders may be able to change a bill if you have only an ATM-issued $20.

Once the bus arrives in Boulder, it will stop a few times.  Once you turn north on Broadway, a major street through town, listen for the Baseline stop and pull the stop cord.  You can ask the driver to tell you when you reach the Baseline stop.

Once your feet are on the sidewalk and your luggage is collected, you can either walk the half mile to the Boulder Inn or take a local bus, the Bound.  Walk to the nearest corner and turn right (there’s a Starbucks there); walk away from the mountains about 35 meters to a bus stop.  Use your transfer to ride the Bound one stop.

Shuttle Service

SuperShuttle is a shared-ride shuttle service from the airport to or from your hotel.  Book your reservation for airport transportation online using the coupon below for a slightly discounted fare of $27 one way or $48 round trip.
