Transportation & Parking 

Plan your travel and transportation carefully to save money while you’re in Denver. Below we have outlined various methods of transportation to the convention center, as well as parking information.

Parking at the Convention Center  
On-site parking is available at the Colorado Convention Center. Hourly rates are as low as $12 for eight hours (rates subject to change). Please check directly with your hotel for rates and information on parking in your hotel’s garage or lot.

Ground Transportation  
Denver International Airport (DEN) is located northwest of downtown Denver; a cab or shuttle ride puts you in the heart of the city in approximately 30 minutes. One-way cab fares are around $60.

Discounted SuperShuttle shared rides are available from/to Denver International Airport—$22.00 one way, $38.00 roundtrip. SuperShuttle vans depart the airport to the downtown Denver area approximately every 15 minutes. Please note that each van may have up to 10 passengers and up to 5 stops in the downtown Denver area. Reserve your seat online and be sure to use discount code NCTM3.

Additional ground transportation options are available at Denver International Airport. Find the Ground Transportation Information Counter inside the airport or visit the airport's ground transportation page for more information.

Shuttle Bus Service  
Certain designated hotels will offer complimentary shuttle service to the Colorado Convention Center for those attendees who booked their hotel rooms through NCTM’s housing bureau. Most hotels are within walking distance of the convention center; therefore, shuttle buses will not serve these hotels. With the limited hotel shuttle schedule, be sure to check out the Regional Transportation District for other means of getting around downtown Denver:

The shuttle service will be available for NCTM attendees from specific hotels beginning Wednesday, April 17, and ending Saturday, April 20. Routes and schedules will be posted in the hotel lobby, and on this website when it becomes available. The schedule will be followed as closely as possible.
