Is it worth it to take a bus instead of driving yourself?

There are a few reasons why it is better to take a bus from Colorado Springs to Denver instead of driving there yourself. First and foremost, by taking the bus you don’t have to concern yourself with parking once you arrive. Especially if you are staying in downtown Denver, you’ll end up paying for extended or overnight parking, and may not find a spot in an ideal location. By riding a bus, you can immediately head to your destination the minute you’re dropped off.

Furthermore, the bus ride averages only slightly longer — 1 hour and 45 minutes — versus the 1 hour and 20 minutes it would take you to drive yourself. While on the bus you can catch up on sleep or focus on work, instead of sitting in traffic on I-25N forced to pay attention to the road, as you would be in your own car.

Are there buses that go directly to Denver International Airport?

Unfortunately, there is not a direct bus that will take you from Colorado Springs to the Denver International Airport. However, once you arrive in Denver, you can easily jump on the RTD rail system to take the A line to the Denver Airport. Fares cost only $3, and you can board the A line right at Union Station.
