There are many transportation services that can be taken at Denver International Airport (DIA). 

As there are numerous campus parking options, we suggest checking Google Maps or a similar service for exact turn by turn directions to campus and parking.

Highway E-470 and the Northwest Parkway are the primary toll roads in the Denver area. Both toll roads offer two methods of payment. License Plate billing and ExpressToll, if you are using a rental car during your stay most companies have ExpressToll accounts and transceivers with their vehicle. However, before using them you may wish to clarify any extra fees they may add for using this service, as some companies charge an extra fee per day when using these. If your car does not have an ExpressToll receiver, unless you are borrowing a car, you may not be able to pay the toll fees for these highways.

For current on-campus parking options and rates, please see Parking and Transportation Services.

The RTD website can assist you with planning your bus transportation with the online Trip Planner.
