Getting Around

Tourists often choose to hire cars in Colorado Springs, especially as most travellers explore widely in the region surrounding the city rather than just in Colorado Springs itself. However, despite car hire being the most convenient transport option, visitors should note that traffic congestion, narrow roads and scarce parking could make driving around the city a bit stressful. For those who prefer not to drive, taxis are available but they should be ordered at least an hour in advance by phone. Public transport consists of a bus system managed by Mountain Metropolitan Transport, which operates comprehensive routes in town between 5am and 10pm on weekdays. Lyft and Uber are also options.
