When you book a seat for a Red Rocks show, note the time designated during the booking process. This is the time we depart from Union Station or The Rackhouse, so be sure to arrive a few minutes before so you don't miss the bus! Since we have other passengers waiting, we must leave on time and if you are not there, we will not wait.
Where exactly are the pickups? The Union Station pickup at 17th and Wynkoop Street, near many hotels downtown such as Magnolia, Hyatt, Marriott, Crawford Hotel and Sheraton to name a few. There are numerous parking garages within a few blocks, and on Sundays street parking is free.
Our other pickup option is The Rackhouse, located at 2875 Blake St. There is ample FREE street-parking, but DO NOT park in the Rackhouse parking lot, as they need those spaces for customers the rest of the night.
Show up as early as you like, and be sure to allow time to fill your belly, glasses or Growlers with C-Squared Cider or Bierstadt Lager! It is up to you to be outside on the street a few minutes before departure time to catch the bus, so make sure you're all closed out early.
Travel times to Red Rocks will vary depending on traffic, but we typically arrive 30-45 minutes after departure. This may be longer due to excessive traffic at the venue.
For every trip we will offer a stop at Will-Call to pick up tickets if anyone needs to pick them up. This stop will be made before we park and drop off, and may require a short wait while passengers pick up their tickets. However, if the line is too long, we may just drop you off and continue on so other passengers can can start tailgating in the lot and get to the show.
We usually arrive at Red Rocks a little before the opening acts start, so there is usually time for tailgating! Feel free to BYOB, as long as you can show ID and promise to be respectful of other passengers and the driver.
We drop off at the Lower South Parking Lot, which is where buses are parked.
The Lower South Lot is great for tailgating so feel free and hang out! *Be advised that the concert is about a 10 minute walk uphill!!
We would love to drop-off and pick-up closer to the entrance, but our buses are too large to be admitted at the top of the venue, and we can't stage at the top waiting for everyone. Also, in order to make the bus easier to find at the end of the show, we must drop off at the same place we pick up so you know where it's at.
After the show is over, encore and all, we allow 20-30 minutes to get out of the show and back to the bus. This is plenty of time to get back to the bus, so don't feel like you have to run! However, if you are not back at the bus 30 minutes after the show ends, we may leave since we have other passengers who are ready to go. Please notify the driver by phone if you find another ride so we know not to expect you back.
After departure, we safely arrive downtown at Union Station in approximately 30-45 minutes. A lot better than driving yourself, eh? ;) Especially after a beer or two. That being said, while not provided by us, alcohol is allowed on the bus as long as you show ID and promise to have a good time while being respectful to the bus driver and other passengers.
