Colorado Transportation

That old saying “you can’t get there from here” doesn’t apply in Colorado, because thanks to our transportation systems, you can get to wherever you want to go.

Denver International lists 18 airlines that service 53 million passengers a year; other primary airports serve Aspen, Colorado Springs, Montrose, Eagle-Vail, Hayden-Steamboat Springs, Grand Junction, Durango and Gunnison. Regional, reliever and general aviation airports are across the state.

Light rail services Denver and Golden; mass transit provides alternative transportation for commuters along the Front Range and to mountain communities; people movers and shuttles get you to your flights on time. Amtrak’s California Zephyr makes daily runs from San Francisco to Chicago, stopping for passengers in Denver, and the Winter Park Ski Train runs from Denver to that ski resort in the winter.

Interstate 70 crosses Colorado from east to west, and Interstate 25 crosses north to south. U.S. 50 runs through from east to west along the southern portion of the state.
