How Do You Get From Denver Airport To Glenwood Springs?
Whether you’re traveling to Glenwood Springs for the world-class tourist attractions or for skiing or hiking, you will have to find out how to get from point A to B. If you’re going there for the first time, here are some of the different options for getting from Denver International Airport to Glenwood Springs.
TRANSPORTATION BY BUS
“There is no direct bus service from Glenwood Springs to Denver. There are, however, buses that leave from 8th St + Pitkin Ave and arrive at Union Station via West Glenwood Park & Ride. The total travel time, including transfers, is around 4h 46m.”
Buses may be very amazing at times, especially if they are equipped with a television and a radio. It is also beneficial to read or work, and you can even keep connected when traveling. Getting from Glenwood Springs to Denver Airport, on the other hand, maybe problematic since buses do not always stop where you want them to. As a result, depending on where you wish to travel, they may be rather costly. Aside from that, buses might be packed, requiring you to wait for the next one. They are also not environmentally friendly (which is bad in the COVID era).
TRANSPORTATION BY TRAIN
“There is a direct train departing from Glenwood Springs and arriving at Denver. Services depart twice daily and operate every day. The journey takes approximately 6 h 28m.”
With no turbulence, no traffic, and none of the strange smells associated with bus travels, taking the train can be a pleasurable way to travel. One problem with going by train is that trains can be very unreliable. Depending on where you’d like to go from Denver Airport, your trip may become expensive as trains cannot drop you at your specific location (as they follow a route). So, you have to take a car even if you travel by train. And there are many transfers involved in this trip from Denver Airport to Glenwood Springs that can take more time and effort.
Uber is another way to travel; however, a lot of drivers won’t drive that far out of the city. On top of that, most of the Uber vehicles are not equipped with snow tires.
