There are Taxi's and Pedi-cabs all over downtown.

I believe DIA (Airport)to downtown by Taxi is a flat rate. Can't recall exactly how much though. I think it's like 40-45 bucks. If you are planning on renting from downtown.

16th street mall is the pedestrian / shuttle bus only area downtown unless I'm missing another spot.


EDIT: Straight from Yellow Cabs website.

We specialize in Denver Airport Trips 24/7!

The driver must charge a flat rate around from DIA and Downtown or Denver Tech Center. No other stops may be made along the way. The flat rate applies regardless of the number of passengers/parties that share a ride. No other charges may be added to this flat rate for trips going TO DIA. No additional charges may be added if passengers/parties exit the taxicab at different airline terminals within DEN.

Downtown: $51.00
Plus $3.50 Gate Fee for trips originating at DIA
$5.00 Extra Drop

DTC: $57.00
Plus $3.50 Gate Fee for trips originating at DIA
$5.00 Extra Drop

I flew in to Denver years ago, and picked up my shipped in bike at Fay Myers. DIA to Denver is an expensive cab ride. Look for a bus or some other sort of public transportation.

Once you're in town it's not so bad.

12 bucks from DIA to downtown on the bus just look for the RTD info office in the main terminal they will tell you were to grab it at.

Do you think they run up to midnight on a Friday though.I looked at the link up a few posts and do not see any "hours"

I don't mind a taxi for $50.00 from the airport if the car is 40% cheaper..
I just don't remember if I saw a lot of taxis driving around for a return to the airport..worse case I can just make a call for one..

This looks like a sore subject out there huh..

Why not take Uber?
https://www.uber.com/cities/denver

Or can not think of the other one a friend was telling me about last night. You sign up and get 5 up to $25 rides free...LOL He said it worked out for him, and he is a fan of Uber.

Take the bus

The bus from the airport to market street is quick and runs frequently. From market street you can get around prety quick.

Bus schedule

The last bus (Skyride) out of the airport is 12:50 AM but they start back up again at 4:50. It cost $11/person. If you don't make it for some reason you can go ahead and catch the expensive cab. The skyride is really the way to go. You may be able to drop a car you rent downtown at the airport for a minimal fee. Some of the car rental places will pick you up and drop you off. I don't know if they will do that at the airport but they will come to your house.
