Transportation

Golden is nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, just 15 miles west of Denver’s big-city style. Fly into Denver International Airport (DEN) on your way to Golden. Rent a car or use Lyft, Uber, SuperShuttle, or a taxi service from the airport to downtown Golden.

Or choose public transit from the airport to Golden. The RTD A Line (light rail) transports riders from the airport to Union Station, located in downtown Denver. Transfer at Union Station to ride the RTD W Line to the Jeffco-Golden Station. From there, downtown Golden is only 3 miles away. Schedule a ride on the Golden Community Call-n-Ride bus for that last leg of the journey.
