Getting Around Vail

Vail has a free bus system. The buses are clean, comfortable, and technologically advanced. The buses use GPS to monitor the location of the buses at all times. You will be able to ensure you never miss a bus to your next destination. The buses travel throughout the Vail Valley to take you virtually to anywhere you need to be. The schedule changes depending upon the year so make sure that you verify times upon your arrival.

Most taxis are available all day and night and everyday throughout the year. Many taxis will transport people to and from all neighboring Vail Valley towns. These services often have taxi pick up points, and in other circumstances, they may pick you up at your location directly. You will have to phone in advance for a taxi and it may take up to 40 minutes before arrival so be certain to do a bit of planning if you have reservations or a flight. The taxis are reliable and the drivers are friendly.

Several shuttle services are offered to and from the airport to your hotels and between ski resorts. Airport shuttles vary greatly in pricing and availability. Certain shuttle companies have set departures based on the flight schedules, as well as hourly departures from both Denver International Airport and Eagle Airport. You are able to book a round-trip or a one-way shuttle. You also have the option of using ski shuttle services with various providers to transport between various slopes.

A growing trend is to rent bicycles to get around Vail. This community is incredibly environmentally friendly and encourages visitors to be so, as well. Many bike rental shops also provide guided tours of the area and take you to places a traditional method of transportation cannot. They are affordable and the freedom of not having to work around the schedule of another person or system is liberating.

If you prefer the transportation style of elite travel, consider a high-end car service or a limousine service. Both are available for any number of services. You might use them to pick you up and drop you off at the airport. You might also utilize such services for daily travel to and from ski resorts or simply to complete errands. Regardless of your transportation needs, these specialized services will happily drive you around the area. It should be noted that the price is much greater of any of the others previously mentioned.
