Want to see the Rocky Mountains without a car? No problem. Get from Denver to the mountains with mountain transportation options like buses, shuttles and charter services.

Winter Park Express Ski Train

Denver is a ski-in, ski-out city, thanks to the reopening of "ski train" service to the mountains. In wintertime, the Winter Park Express transports skiers and snowboarders from Denver Union Station to Winter Park Resort

Rocky Mountaineer

Get a feel for the rails while seeing some spectacular scenery that only a train ride can provide by traveling from Denver to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, to Moab, Utah, on the Rocky Mountaineer. You'll go through Ruby Canyon, see Mount Logan and cross the Continental Divide and see deserts, arches and hoodoos. The spacious glass-domed train coaches let you take it all in. 

Bus Service to the Mountains

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has dispatched a fleet of purple buses called Bustang. The daily west route follows Interstate 70 and has eight stops, including Frisco, Vail and Glenwood Springs. Bustang buses have Wi-Fi, bathrooms and bike racks. In the wintertime, there's a handy service called Snowstang, which provides 40 days of service to four ski areas: Loveland Ski Area, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, and Steamboat Resort and Howelsen Hill in Steamboat Springs. The bus service runs on Saturdays and Sundays, plus the Martin Luther King Jr. and Presidents Day holidays. Passengers can board at Denver Union Station or the Denver Federal Center. And CDOT has launched a year-round express service called Pegasus, which departs Union Station every hour (from sunrise to sunset) and has stops at the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood, Idaho Springs, Frisco, Vail and Avon.
