Laramie Regional Airport (Only United Airlines has a direct flight to Laramie. From here, it is a 20 minute drive into downtown Laramie. There is only Hertz car rental available at the Laramie airport.)
Carpool Options from Denver to Laramie:
– Greyhound Transportation
– Green Ride The Green Ride (GR) Shared ride Airport Shuttle service provides a low cost environmentally friendly transportation service between Denver International Airport, Fort Collins, and Southern Wyoming. In a GR Shared Ride, you share the vehicle with other travelers while also sharing the overall cost of the service. GR Shared ride helps the environment by eliminating the need for travelers to drive to DIA or get a ride with a friend or family member. Laramie drop-offs are at the Hilton Garden Inn, the UWyo Washakie Dining Center (next to Downey Hall), and the WYOTECH Campus Courtyards.
