Parking at Denver Airport? Don’t!

Construction recently began on Denver International’s airport train station and hotel, shutting down a road that connects both sides of the terminal. That means travelers taking the shuttle from the airport’s remote lots will no longer be dropped off at the terminal – they’ll be dropped outside a garage, and made to haul their luggage another 200 yards to the airport.

Worse yet, it’s going to be like that for – wait for it – several YEARS.

Fortunately, we’ve got convenient, affordable parking options at Denver International. Check them out, and save yourself a lot of trouble!
