Scheduled Shuttle from Boulder to Estse Park and Estes Park to Boulder during the summer.
Travelers from Denver can connect the RTD bus to Boulder and then connect to Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides Shuttle from Boulder to Estes Park.
Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides is the only company authorized by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to have a scheduled shuttle between Boulder and Estes Park.
Description: Come experience the Jewel of the Rockies: Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park (The eastern gateway town into the park). Shuttle departs in the morning and returns in the afternoon. Depart from the front door of three Boulder hotels. This is a great opportunity to experience much of the park while leaving your car behind. Once we reach Estes Park, one can utilize the free hiker and national park shuttles in and around much of the park (late June - September). Certain parking areas within the national park have very limited parking spaces and for much of the day visitors will need to utilize the park service’s free shuttle system to access these areas. In addition to hassle free access to the park, we provide insight and education in the history and natural history of Colorado.

Stanley, who built the famous Stanley Hotel built also the road from Lyons, over which he brought visitors. This marks the first time in history that an automobile, instead of train, was used to transport people to a resort area.
I am not sure whether this car, I saw, was one of those that brought on its wheels some tourist from somewhere who knows where, but to my great surprise this old car is running.
You can't miss a national park the size of Estes Park. You can get lost on the way there. There are plenty of signs pointing the way. The town of Estes on the east side of the park has a visitor center that I suggest you see before entering the park, if you are on the east side.
No public transportation, only private companies, like Charles limosine, with 2 or 3 services a day, to conect Estes Park with Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins. This is a fact from 1995, i hope it changes
