Bikes and Scooters
The city of Denver’s bike-friendly planning and lay-out make bicycles and scooters a preferred choice for many travelers, reducing the motorist carbon footprint. Hop on your bike or take advantage of the electric scooter-sharing program through Lime. Commuters arriving on campus will find bike racks, bike garages, repair stations and designated moped parking areas, including several located near CAVEA.

Airport Commuter Rail
Commuters can skip the traffic and cost of parking, thanks to direct rail connection via the A-Line, available from Denver International Airport to Downtown Denver.
The commuter rail station is located outside the south entrance of the airport’s Jeppesen Terminal. The short walk along the walkway leads down to the platform underneath the Westin Denver International Airport hotel and conference center.
When arriving downtown at Union Station, choose any of the options above to complete the journey to the Auraria Campus, a short 15 minute walk from the station. Also available are taxi services such as bike taxis, Lyft, and Yellow Cab.
