Nestled at the base of the Rockies, Boulder has always been a beautiful and intriguing city. For what Boulder lacks in size compared to Denver, it makes up with just about everything else – skiing and snowboarding, education, art, culture, and colorful history.
Chances are, when you make a trip to Boulder, you will arrive or depart from Denver International Airport (DIA) which is about 30 miles away. Although Boulder is host to its own municipal airport, no major airlines contract there.
Below we’ve covered the best ways to travel between Boulder, CO and Denver International.
One of the most economical ways to make this trip is via the RTD Skyride. It’s a public transit option run by Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD). This shuttle runs on a circuit with designated pick-up and drop-off locations, and buses departing every 15 minutes.

Commuter or shared-ride shuttles (like SuperShuttle) are available to run the route between DIA and Boulder. By grouping passengers heading in the same direction, shared-ride shuttles keep a ride affordable that could otherwise become costly due to the distance traveled.
You can find SuperShuttle at Denver International Airport in baggage claim. The ticket counter is located between the women's restroom and the ground transportation booth on the southwest side of the terminal. The counter is staffed between 6 AM and 11:30 PM but after-hours arrivals can use the courtesy phone available there to speak with dispatch.

Taxis, Rental Cars, and On-Site Parking
Because of the distance from airport to destination, a taxi’s metered rates could prove a strain on the budgets of some travelers. For example, TaxiFareFinder.com quotes the one-way trip between DIA and downtown Boulder at $100.97 to $102.49. Rates for taxis out of Denver International, as well as the rental car services and parking options available, are included in our detailed post on Denver Airport Transportation options.
