Red Rocks Transportation Guide: How to Get To Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Red Rocks Transportation Guide: How to Get To Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is the ultimate concert venue in Colorado.  Perfectly located in Morrison, Colorado, Red Rocks draws concert-goers from along the Front Range as well as from around the country and the world. 

While there are many transportation options for getting to and from Red Rocks Amphitheatre, there really aren’t any public transportation options through RTD (Regional Transportation system).

There are, however, plenty of other options available to get to and from Red Rocks safely. If you know you are going to have a few drinks to celebrate the evening, please be responsible. 

Designate a driver, take a party bus, hire a private shuttle, or use ride-share – but whatever you do to get to Red Rocks, do NOT drink and drive!

Red Rocks Amphitheatre Transportation Guide

Red Rocks Transportation Options

Getting to and from a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre can be a bit of a challenge – but it doesn’t have to be!

There are several different parking lots and the lines of cars can be daunting.  And, while driving yourself to Red Rocks is always an option, many people might like to imbibe on some beverages and party treats while watching their favorite band play at one of the best venues in the country!

We all can appreciate transportation to  Red Rocks Amphitheatre without any headaches or complications.  So, it’s best to take the time to arrange a safe mode of transportation beforehand so that you can simply relax and enjoy Red Rocks to the fullest.

🚙  Red Rocks Amphitheatre Parking Information

First things first – always make sure you have a responsible driver to get you to and from a show at Red Rocks.

Then, make sure you nail down the parking options.

There is plenty of parking at Red Rocks, but it is highly recommended that you carpool. 

Red Rocks Parking Lots open 2 hours before event door time. 

Upper Lots require the least amount of exercise to get into Red Rocks Amphitheatre, but they fill up fast!

Lower Lots have their own unique lot scene, and may be easier to get in and out of – but bring comfy walking shoes and an extra road beer for the long walk into the show.

Don’t take any chances if your DD decides he just can’t resist the partying. Grab a Lyft or Uber home (picks up from Lower South Lot 2), and get your car in the morning.  NOTE: All cars must be removed from the Red Rocks parking lots by 10 am the following day.
