As Denver continues to grow, getting around the city, to and from campus, and even from one side of campus to another is becoming increasingly challenging. Efforts to reduce single-occupancy trips in Denver improve air quality and health in the city. The Center for Sustainability’s Mobility Team partners with organizations across campus and the Denver area to make alternative and active transportation options easy, convenient, affordable and safe.
DU Bike Shop
Biking is a great way to get around campus and Denver. However, regular bike maintenance can become costly. The Center for Sustainability manages an on-campus bike shop to help keep your bike rolling and your costs lower, with free labor and at-cost parts available to all DU registered bikes (register your bike with Parking and Mobility Services).

The campus shuttle offers easy and free transportation for students, faculty, and staff to locations on and near campus. You can request a ride, reserve your seat, and see where the shuttle is on its route by downloading and registering your DU email address on the Tripshot app (using the service name DUSHUTTLE). The DU Shuttle runs on a loop around campus, making stops at 10 locations from 7AM-5PM, Monday thru Friday. The shuttle also provides on-demand services to locations as far west as Broadway, as far east as Colorado Blvd, as far north as Wash Park, and as far south as the Mass-Comm building.
Check out maps of the stop locations, detailed instructions for using Tripshot, and other details at the Parking and Mobility Services Website
Did you walk, bike, carpool, or light rail to campus? We think that’s awesome. During fall and spring quarters, come visit the Mobility Munchies table every Wednesday to grab some coffee and breakfast and learn about upcoming mobility events like bike rides to the farmers market, themed bike rides around the city, bike raffles and more.
Sponsored by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), the Go-Tober Challenge is an annual month-long competition among employers in the Denver region that encourages employees to try different ways of getting to and from work during the month of October. The more trips tracked, the better companies rank in their quest to win the title of Go-Tober Champion!
