Denver Airport parking
With so much land area allocated to the airport and huge expansion plans in place, plenty of space has been given over for airport car parking; 45,000 spaces are available in multiple parking lots that are reachable by either a short walk (10-minute or less) or a quick shuttle bus ride (12-minute or less). All lots are secure and the main airport garages include a range of hybrid parking spaces, electric vehicle charging stations and services like jump starts and tire replacement.
Picking up and dropping off
There are pick-up and drop-off points in front of the terminal and a nearby cell phone lot if you need to wait for a passenger to get through baggage reclaim and outside arrivals. For anyone needing to leave their car, short-term parking spaces are available in the parking garages at the nearest points to the terminal. Since they are intended for short stays, they offer an hourly rate with no daily maximum.
Short-term garage parking
Immediately next to the terminal are the east and west parking garages offering hourly rates with a daily fee limit; this is the most conveniently located parking facility, so it’s ideal for those with limited time who don't want to take shuttle buses. Reserved parking is available in these lots for an additional daily fee to give you peace of mind that you'll find a good space quickly.
If you want to avoid spending any time looking for a parking space, a valet service is also available. A qualified driver will meet you curbside at the terminal and park your car in the garages for you, having it back at arrivals when you return from your trip. The service also offers car washes and cleaning as optional extras.
Beyond the garages are two large economy lots that offer a reduced daily rate for just a few minutes’ extra walk, though there are complimentary shuttle buses to and from the terminal available, too.
Further out on the airport property are two shuttle lots with a park and ride service that typically offers the cheapest prices on-site. They are connected to the main airport buildings by shuttle buses, which take around 10-15 minutes to drop you at the terminal.
Off-site parking services
Parking is also available off-site through various services. 61st and Pena Parking is based at the Pena Boulevard rail station, which sits just off-site from the airport property on the edge of the main Denver urban area. Parking at the station lot has a very low daily charge and the train services connect you to both the airport and downtown.
There are also several dedicated airport parking lots based within a few miles of the airport that offer valet and park and ride services. Valets can meet you curbside at departures and park your car for you at an off-site lot or you can self-park and take a short complimentary shuttle bus ride to the terminal.
