Airport Information: New Train Service From Denver, CO (DEN) To The City

by Kerwin McKenzie on April 22, 2016

One of the most annoying thing for me are airports that don’t have proper public transit method to get from the airport to the city. I love to do quick day trips, I’ve even written a whole Airport To the City Guide for London-Heathrow Airport. Many of the U.S. cities have always been a pain point including Denver International (DEN), but not anymore as effective today, April 22, 2016, they’ve launched an airport to the city train service.

 

You can find a list of U.S. and Canadian airports with train service here.

There’s a new commuter rail service on the University of Colorado A Line that runs from Denver Airport to Union Station downtown. I wonder how many U.S. cities have a Union station? Portland, Los Angeles to name two I think. Can you name others?

The cost is 9 USD and it takes 37 minutes making six stops along the way. There is no train service from 1a to 3a and runs every 15 minutes from 6a to 8p and every 30 minutes outside of those times. So you are all sorted.

At the airport, you can check your bags at the train station level as well as print your boarding pass if you’ve not already checked in online.

For more details check out their Web site.

Have you tried it yet?
