NextBus Information

LED display screen have been added to each of the 18 shelters located in the Pikes Peak shuttle lot ($8 per day). The displays show, in real time, when the next shuttle bus will arrive. Shelters in the Mt. Elbert shuttle lot ($8 per day) as well as the east and west economy lots ($13 per day) contain signs with instructions on how to get the same information via phone, text or QR codes using a smartphone. The new system uses GPS technology to track the exact location of each shuttle bus, and predict the arrival times at each stop in the parking lots and at the Jeppesen Terminal. DIA’s shuttle buses transport about 7.5 million passengers annually, and travel an estimated 2.4 million miles each year.
