2018 Conference Travel
SAEE Conference attendees can take advantage of a special offer for transportation to and from the Denver Airport with Green Ride Boulder - $36 each way between the airport and The Hiltons on Canyon. Use this link for reservations:
If arriving on Friday, there is also an option to arrive on campus from the airport.
Uber and Lyft
Uber and Lyft also pick up from the airport, including Uberx. Each way on either will be $80 minimum with peak times often being over $100 each way.
Car rental agencies are located on airport property but require courtesy bus service to and from the terminal. Shuttles pick-up and drop-off from the terminal on Level 5, Island 4, outside doors 505-513 (east side) and 504-512 (west side). This will take an additional half hour of transport time and then additional time for pick-up at the individual agency.
The quickest way from the airport to Boulder is on the Northwest Parkway (E-470), which is a toll road that is $14 each way. The other highway option is from the airport along Pena Boulevard, to I-70 West to I-270 West, to US36 West. These are very busy highways during much of the day.
The bus from the airport is called the AB2 and leaves from Gate 8. On weekdays, it only has 4 times where it drops off at Arapahoe and 28th, which is one block south of The Hotels on Canyon. It is $9 each way, and exact change in cash is required. The other airport-to-Boulder bus (AB1) would require an Uber or Lyft from any of the drop-off points within Boulder.
The bus to the airport from Boulder on Saturday is called the AB1, and leaves every hour, but an Uber or Lyft would be required from the hotel to any of the stations within Boulder. It is $9 each way, and exact change in cash is required. SAEE suggests taking an Uber or Lyft to the Table Mesa Park and Ride and catch the bus there.
