TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS FOR THE 2017 TEDPA CONFERENCE IN GOLDEN, CO
Area Airport and Train
The Denver International Airport (DEN) is located 35 miles from Golden, Colorado, and 25 miles from Denver’s Union Station. Denver’s high speed, state-of-the-art RTD A Line train picks up visitors directly outside the airport doors and drops them at Denver’s beautiful, recently renovated Union Station in 36 minutes. From Union Station, visitors can continue on to Golden using the high speed RTD light rail W Line. And all for $9.00!
Make sure before you head to Golden that you take advantage of everything that Union Station has to offer. Whether it be lunch at one of the many restaurants, a cup of joe at Pigtrain Coffee, ice cream at the Milkbox Ice Creamery, or picking up a book/gift at Tattered Cover Book Store, you’ll certainly want to spend some time here!
Denver Marriott West has a complimentary shuttle that will pick up guests from the Oak Street Station just 2 miles from the hotel. This service can also be used for guests wishing to take the light rail into Denver or to Union Station. The shuttle runs every half hour and can be scheduled through the front desk at 303.279.9100.
Benefits to using RTD Train and Light Rail:
- You can buy one-way tickets and day passes using cash, credit or debit at the ticket vending machines located at any RTD rail station. The Regional/Airport Day Pass is the same price as a one-way Airport ticket and grants unlimited travel on any RTD service for the remainder of the service day.
- Cost Effective!! Check out pricing HERE
- Discounts for seniors and individuals with disabilities
- Reduce your carbon footprint and help keep Colorado beautiful!

NOTE: you will need to call the hotel to add your name to their pick-up and drop-off list.
