Ground Transportation

Travel to Boulder via DIA

Participants will fly into Denver International Airport.

DIA to Boulder

The closest airport to Boulder is Denver International Airport (DIA). Participants may travel to Boulder by rental car or by shuttle. The easiest and least expensive way to get from the Denver Airport to your lodging is the Super Shuttle. The Super Shuttle counter is on Level 5 in the main terminal (diagonal to the Hertz Rental Car counter). Shuttles operate daily every 15-30 minutes from 7 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. and then as needed. Super Shuttle serves all Boulder hotels. A reservation is not required for departure from the airport, but you can make a reservation online in advance if you wish at http://www.supershuttle.com/. Use the discount code NCAR1 to obtain a $5 discount (each way). A public bus is available for $20 roundtrip, but requires a transfer within Boulder to get to the hotel. For groups of 2 or more traveling at the same time, you might consider a rental car, typically available at the airport for $20-40/day (arrange in advance).

Transportation in Boulder

Shuttle service will be provided each morning and evening between the three listed hotels and the meeting venue.
