Getting to Fort Collins from the Denver Airport
Airport Shuttle – Groome Transportation
Groome Transportation : (888) 472-6656 (Previously known as Green Ride) Reservations are necessary. Service leaves about every hour.
Most people fly into Denver International Airport (DIA), and then take a shuttle to Fort Collins. The trip takes about 1.75 hours and costs approximately $35 per person.
When arranging a pick-up time from the airport, plan an extra 20-30 minutes to pick up checked baggage, plus an additional 15 minutes to navigate the airport to the shuttle pick-up location. Students who miss the last shuttle to Fort Collins will need to stay overnight in Denver at a hotel near the airport, at their own expense.
There are several drop-off points in Fort Collins, depending on time of arrival. We recommend getting dropped off at your residence, if you are able to move in upon arrival. If arriving during office hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.), you may wish to be dropped off at the CSU Transit Center on campus, which will cost less than a personal location.
Make sure to arrange temporary or long-term housing before you arrive so you can decide where to be dropped off. Visit our Housing webpage for information about housing options and resources.
