Vail shuttles are available in very good supply, and many travelers understandably rely on them, especially air travelers. There is no Vail airport for commercial flights, so shuttle companies pick up the slack and cover the rest of the distance by land. All the passenger has to do is sit back and enjoy the ride, which isn't hard to do thanks to the beautiful Rocky Mountains scenery.
Denver to Vail Shuttle
Many Vail visitors come from Denver, as the Colorado capital is where you will find the state's busiest airport. After the plane lands and baggage is collected, it is possible to hop on a shuttle that is destined for any number of Colorado ski resorts, including Vail. Various companies offer these kinds of mountain services, and they pick passengers up at Jeppesen Terminal Level 5, Island 2. Usually, the areas outside doors 507-511 and doors 506-510 are the pick-up, and drop-off sites. Making reservations for a Denver to Vail shuttle in advance is recommended, and it should be noted that some of the shuttle companies offer extra-convenient charter and on-demand services for an added fee. The regularly scheduled Denver to Vail shuttles usually operate between the hours of 8 a.m. and 11 p.m., and there are many to select from.
Vail to Denver Airport Shuttle
Getting from Vail to Denver by way of shuttle is just as easy as going the opposite route. All you have to do is make a reservation, and most companies will pick you up at your Vail hotel or vacation rental. If you are trying to get on one of the regularly schedule ones, they typically run between the hours of 5 a.m. and 7 p.m., with the drive taking about two and a half hours. The regular departure times can vary depending on the season, as is true of all Vail shuttles, so it's always a good idea to check in advance. Unless you arrange for pick-up at your hotel or vacation rental, you will most likely hop on your Vail to Denver Airport shuttle at the Vail Transportation Center, since it is the main transportation hub.
Vail to Breckenridge Shuttle
Since your Vail lift tickets are also good at Breckenridge, you might consider traveling between the two resorts in order to see what both have to offer. Whatever your needs, there are shuttles that travel from Vail to Breckenridge and vice versa. Many are charter or on-demand shuttles, though there is at least one company that offers a daily round trip. These pre-arranged shuttles also visit Keystone, and once again, your Vail lift tickets are good at this other sister resort.
Vail to Aspen Shuttle
The various Colorado shuttle companies can basically take you anywhere you want to go, especially when it comes to those who offer charter and on-demand services. This is good news for those who are interested in finding a Vail to Aspen shuttle. Much like Vail, Aspen is one of the country's most upscale ski resorts, not to mention one of the very best overall, so visiting both on a Colorado ski vacation is understandably tempting. You might also find that taking a shuttle from the Eagle County Airport to Aspen is an option that suits your needs, and you can also take a shuttle from this smaller regional airport to Vail if you so desire. You can find the Eagle County Airport approximately 35 miles west of Vail and 78 miles north of Aspen.
