Arriving from Denver International Airport
Denver International Airport (DIA) is 45 miles from Boulder.
The AB bus (westbound to NCAR) is the least expensive option (US$10.50). It leaves the airport every half hour (see schedule) and stops throughout Boulder. Travel to Boulder Downtown Station is about 1hr (traffic dependent). RTD’s website will also help you plan your travel by bus to destinations throughout the Boulder region (including Longmont, Louisville, Lafayette, Superior, etc.) and to Denver International Airport.

Moving around Boulder
The City of Boulder’s website is a good source for biking at all levels, and has e-scooters and e-bikes to borrow for a fee around town: https://bouldercolorado.gov/services/shared-e-scooters-and-e-bikes
Coloradans like to say, “if you’re tired of the weather, wait 20 minutes.” The weather can change without notice and it is good to be prepared. Dress in layers and have rain gear in your backpack when hiking. Summer can bring very hot and dry weather with afternoon or evening showers. It is usually cool at night and sweaters can be necessary when hiking, especially at a higher elevation. In addition, thunderstorms are common in the summer as well. Boulder is 5,430 feet (1,655 meters) above sea level. At this elevation, it is important to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen and sunglasses. If you are coming from a lower elevation, it is likely that you will notice the effect of the altitude. Some people experience headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, and general fatigue. It is advised to drink plenty of water, especially in the week leading up to arrival.
