Breckenridge, Colorado is home to some of the best skiing and outdoor adventure activities in the United States – with hundreds of thousands of people flocking to this community each and every year to soak in all that it offers (and not just in the wintertime).
The only challenge you’ll have getting out to Breckenridge, though, is that you’re going to have to fly into Denver before finding transportation to take you west into Breckenridge itself.
The difficulty here isn’t that you’ll have a tough time finding transportation options. There are plenty of different possibilities (we highlight four below). The challenge is finding the best transportation options for your needs – offering the perfect combination between speed, safety, scheduling, and price.
Let’s dig a little deeper into your transportation options to get you from Denver to Breckenridge right now.
Travel by Bus
Plenty of people living and working in Denver and the surrounding communities love to soak in all that Breckenridge has to offer, which is why there are daily bus routes between these two Colorado communities.
Visitors to the city can take advantage of these daily bus routes as well, but there is a little bit of a wrinkle here. While these bus routes are very inexpensive (with ticket prices ranging between $14 and $21 one way) the buses only run four times a day and will only take you as far as Frisco.
This is going to limit your scheduling quite a bit and on top of that you’re going to then have to take the bus from Frisco south to Breckenridge (though there is a bus that does that run every 30 minutes on a daily basis).
You’ll also be packed in with a busload of people and all your stuff, may have to make a couple of stops in Genesee, Idaho Springs, Georgetown, and Silverthorne before you end up in Frisco – and then you have to unload and reload another bus just to get down to Breckenridge itself.
Even if you perfectly timed everything about this trip from the moment you stepped off your airplane to the moment you stepped on board the first bus you’d still have to deal with a 15 to 20 minute delay transferring from the Denver bus to the Frisco bus, and then you’ll have to make that ride as well.
All in all, these bus trips regularly take between two hours and 20 minutes and two hours and 40 minutes (give or take) – adding nearly an extra hour and then some to your travel time.
Travel by Uber/Lyft
Uber is always an option when you are looking to go from Denver to Breckenridge, and a lot of people find this to be a more flexible option – though there are some issues you’ll have to navigate here, too.
For starters, Uber availability can be all over the place. Sometimes you’ll be able to find a ride out from Denver to Breckenridge with absolutely no trouble whatsoever, other times you might find yourself sitting at the Denver airport for an hour or two onto you find someone looking to make this run – and sometimes you might get skunked completely.
On top of that, these Uber rides are always going to be a little bit on the expensive side of things and you never really know what kind of ride or what kind of driver you are getting, either.
If you have a lot of luggage, have a lot of passengers, or have to make a couple of stops along the way to pick up groceries, grab your ski rentals, or something similar using an Uber becomes a nightmare, too.
Travel by Taxi
Good old-fashioned taxi services still operate throughout Denver and the surrounding area, though they definitely feel like they are going the way of the dodo.
Expensive (even more expensive than Uber most of the time) options to be sure, there is a bit more reliability in that you can contact a taxi service directly and have a vehicle dispatched to you most of the time.
However, if you have to make those stops we highlighted above things get pretty pricey in a hurry. On top of that you’ll never know if your driver is taking you the fastest route out to Breckenridge or is “padding the clock” to build a bigger fare for you to pay at the end of the ride.
