Getting Around Town

Denver is a walkable city with restaurants, shopping and services within easy reach of the convention center. However, several hotels are located outside a convenient distance and you may not have the ability to bring or rent a car while at ISTE 2016. Affordable transportation options are available.

ISTE provides shuttle service between a number of the official conference hotels and the CCC. Transit time for most hotel shuttle routes is approximately 30 minutes*. Please plan accordingly as transit times may differ due to unforeseen traffic conditions. Shuttle times listed are FIRST BUS from hotels and LAST BUS from Colorado Convention Center for the day.
