You might know Steamboat for the many attractions and activities that we offer, but you might be wondering the best way to get here or the easiest way to get around Steamboat while you’re here. We’re here to help give you the best insider tips on ways to get here and beat the traffic while you’re in town.
Starting with those who are flying in, be sure to check out Go Alpine or Storm Mountain Express for options to and from Denver or Hayden. Both offer shared shuttles, private service, or charter van services to cater to your group’s needs. Shared shuttle service will often be the most effective option for those who are budget conscious, and private or charter services allow you to build the vacation of your dreams.
Getting To and Around Steamboat - Transportation Details
Once you’ve arrived in town, many lodging properties offer some form of free shuttle service for guests during your stay. These vary from being on a schedule to being on call so be sure to ask the front desk at check-in what the details are for their shuttle service. Many places offer shuttles year round, but for some properties, the shuttle service is only available in the winter. For those properties that don’t offer shuttle services, many are located on one of our many bus routes or within walking distance to a bus stop. Steamboat has a fantastic free public bus system that runs from 6 a.m. until almost 2 a.m. in some seasons, making it free and easy to travel around in our charming mountain town.
If you’ll be visiting during an event weekend, whether it’s the Wild West Air Fest over Labor Day or OktoberWest, the free city bus system is a great way to navigate around town. Taking the bus removes the hassle of parking and allows you and your family to travel around town with ease. This also makes dinner on Lincoln Avenue or a late night out with friends a breeze. Be sure to take advantage of this free service during your stay to help make the most of your time in Steamboat Springs.
