Feeling lost? We’ve gone ahead and put together a list of the six most popular Denver Startup Week venues. Use either the bus, car, or bike icons to open up the coordinating map and happy travels!
Getting around downtown Denver can be a challenge. With thousands of people converging on the city for DSW, traffic and parking will be a problem. Don’t worry though, as you have plenty of options besides driving. Make sure to plan your transit ahead of time to avoid frustration.
- Ride Sharing with Lyft is a convenient option, but be careful, those fares can add up quickly.
- Public Transit can get you within less than a mile of almost every Denver Startup Week venue. RTD has a handy trip planner but we also recommend using Google Maps.
- Example RTD Plan for Basecamp to Enterprise Coworking:
Bicycling is a great option for getting around the city, especially renting bikes through BCycle. BCycle has 88 stations and 700 bikes available in Denver. Find the station nearest to you with their B-Cycle Location Map, and you’ll be able to hop easily from one venue to the next.
- Dockless electric scooters are the latest transit option here in Denver, available from both Bird and Lime S. Use their apps to find and checkout the nearest scooter to your location, but we recommend bringing a helmet if you do.
- Car Rentals for those who would rather drive are available with services like Car2Go and ZipCar. Car2Go’s home area encapsulates every DSW location, and ZipCar has locations throughout downtown as well (get a discount on ZipCar rentals by signing up here). An alternative is Turo, an Airbnb-style app that lets users rent out their personal vehicles. Prices vary!
- Parking is sparingly available around downtown Denver, but we wouldn’t count on it. Most metered spots downtown have a 2-hour limit, good for one session only. If you can find a spot in the Denver Performing Arts Center parking garage, you can stay the entire day for $16. There are numerous pay-to-park lots around downtown Denver, but they’ll cost you.
