Red Rocks Transportation Guide: How to Get To Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is the ultimate concert venue in Colorado. Perfectly located in Morrison, Colorado, Red Rocks draws concert-goers from along the Front Range as well as from around the country and the world.
While there are many transportation options for getting to and from Red Rocks Amphitheatre, there really aren’t any public transportation options through RTD (Regional Transportation system).
There are, however, plenty of other options available to get to and from Red Rocks safely. If you know you are going to have a few drinks to celebrate the evening, please be responsible.
Red Rocks Transportation Options
Getting to and from a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre can be a bit of a challenge – but it doesn’t have to be!
There are several different parking lots and the lines of cars can be daunting. And, while driving yourself to Red Rocks is always an option, many people might like to imbibe on some beverages and party treats while watching their favorite band play at one of the best venues in the country!
We all can appreciate transportation to Red Rocks Amphitheatre without any headaches or complications. So, it’s best to take the time to arrange a safe mode of transportation beforehand so that you can simply relax and enjoy Red Rocks to the fullest.
🚙 Designate a Driver to Get to Red Rocks
First things first – always make sure you have a responsible driver to get you to and from a show at Red Rocks.
Then, make sure you nail down the parking options.
There is plenty of parking at Red Rocks, but it is highly recommended that you carpool.
Red Rocks Parking Lots open 2 hours before event door time.
Upper Lots require the least amount of exercise to get into Red Rocks Amphitheatre, but they fill up fast!
Lower Lots have their own unique lot scene, and may be easier to get in and out of – but bring comfy walking shoes and an extra road beer for the long walk into the show.
Don’t take any chances if your DD decides he just can’t resist the partying. Grab a Lyft or Uber home (picks up from Lower South Lot 2), and get your car in the morning. NOTE: All cars must be removed from the Red Rocks parking lots by 10am the following day.
🚌 Take a Shuttle to Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Consider taking a group shuttle to Red Rocks Amphitheatre this year.
There are several party bus and shuttle options available that can get you safely from the Front Range area to the amphitheater and back. All you need to do is relax with your friends, drink some cold bevies, and enjoy the ride.
Shuttle buses will drop you off (and pick you up) at Lower South Lot 2 in Red Rocks parking – the only lot where oversized vehicles are permitted to park.
Here are a few Red Rocks Shuttle Bus options that we think are worth checking out:
🚌Bus to Show is a non-profit that offers transportation to Red Rocks Amphitheatre from multiple locations, including Boulder, Denver, Longmont, and Fort Collins.
Bus to Show uses converted school buses to pick up and drop concert-goers to Red Rocks shows throughout the year. This is an affordable option because it isn’t a private bus – you will ride with dozens of other concert-goers to the show. You’ll make new friends while throwing back a cold beverage – and you are pretty much guaranteed a crazy, fun ride with their onboard DJs!
Prices range between $25 – $30 (plus a small service fee) per person.
Private Shuttle Buses to Red Rocks:
While mostly known for their incredible craft beer tours around Colorado, Denver Brew Tours is owned by music lovers who know Red Rocks Amphitheatre like the back of their hand.
