How often do the shuttles run and where do they drop off and pick up at the terminal?

Free shuttle service operates 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week, every 7-10 minutes. Shuttles pick up at the parking shelters in the Economy lots.

NOTE:  Economy Lot shuttle stops are subject to change during construction periods and walking distance to Jeppesen Terminal may be increased without notice.

Upon your return, West and East Economy shuttles pick up outside the terminal at the DEN Transit Center – located on the ground level outside the Westin Denver International Airport and accessed at the south end of the terminal, through the glass doors and down the escalator.

Are your parking facilities secure?

Our parking facilities are well lit and monitored by parking employees and patrolled frequently by the Denver Police Department. 

Although DEN parking lots are patrolled, it is imperative passengers take the proper steps to secure their vehicle. Follow these tips to better protect your vehicle: Always lock your car, roll up the windows and take your keys with you; remove valuables or spare keys from your vehicle; never leave the car running unattended, even for a short period of time; park in well-lit and/or busy areas when possible; use an alarm system and/or steering wheel lock device.

I have lost my parking ticket, how will you know how much I owe?

If you have been at the airport less than 24 hours, your charge will be the daily maximum of the facility in which you parked. If your vehicle has been parked at the airport longer than 24 hours, our vehicle license plate inventory will indicate how many days your vehicle has been parked in our facilities and you will be charged the maximum daily rate for each day.
