Shuttle service from DIA to Aspen 7/31 9 pm.

Or a ride share or anyone going that way.

I will get the flight numbers and such but she flies in at 9:10 pm.

I knew they had shuttle services and buses and what not. Googled and got something like 90 different outfits. Looked at about 10 of them and it seems they want you to book a whole van for 15 for $500 or .....

Couldn't figure it out.

Can someone give me an idea of where to start to get my wife to Aspen on July 31st late evening so she can go on a backpack trip with her sister.

Thanks.

Thanks for that enlightening post. I know there are dozens of shuttle services to get to Aspen. Tickets are booked, just trying to help my wife get from DIA to Aspen. She won't be flying there.

Yo cravedog, try CME. Probably the most reliable and affordable. -ad

I think when you do the math it will be cheaper to rent a car.

Thanks guys. With the availability of shuttle and the schedule(?) for their backpack trip means she needs to be in Aspen Wednesday the 31st or early on Thursday August 1st.
First shuttle after her flight from CME leaves DIA Thursday at Noon.

Just putting it out there - maybe someone flies out of DIA Wednesday and needs a car brought back to Aspen or .....I have had some crazy coincidences come together because I believe something could happen. Often not in the original form you thought of, but it happens.

Thanks for the replies.

She could also consider a gorgeous train ride to Glenwood Springs on Amtrak, from there she could take a RFTA bus, get picked up by said sister, or stick out a thumb. Not sure about the schedule and she might get mooned by dirt bag rafters and tubers as the train passes along the Colorado River.

Amtrack could work but CME is the best bet. I have done it alot as have some freinds adn my girlfreind.
Amtrak leaves Denver early if its on time CME costs @125 look for Colorado Mountain Express on line and you can make a reservation

Thanks everyone. Just figuring this out. Last shuttle to Edwards is at 9:30 her flight into DIA at 9:10 theoretically. CME won't hold the shuttle so we are looking into flight changes.

Someone can meet her at Edwards so we'll try that. FYI last shuttle leaving DIA to Aspen is at 6:30 pm. Claire at CME helped me out a bit with some info and how it works.

So unless someone is looking for company that night driving to Westwater or Cat ( is Westwater running?) then the flight must change or....something.

My wife claims internet ignorance and thinks I am the Lord of Google or some shit so she can't figure out why I can't make it happen.

Thanks everyone for the help and suggestion.
