Mountain Shuttle Service: Getting around town

Taking Peak 1 Express means skipping the rental counter, avoiding rental car fees, and not having to worry about mountain roads.  Once you arrive in Summit County or the Vail Valley, getting around is easy!  If you are booking the Breckenridge Airport shuttle, downtown Keystone, or Copper Mountain, you’ll be in easy walking distance to the slopes as well as many shops and restaurants.  When you want to explore, the Summit Stage is a county-wide bus system that is also completely free.  If you stay in Vail, they also offer a free of charge Eco Transit option as well. Using a Denver airport shuttle service takes the hassle and worry out of your vacation.
