Getting around in Colorado Springs
The best way to get around Colorado Springs is by car, since some of the city's most popular things to do – including the famous Pikes Peak – cannot be reached on foot from the city center. However, if you plan on spending the day in downtown Colorado Springs or nearby Manitou Springs, your own two feet and a comfy pair of shoes should suffice. You can rent a vehicle in town or at the Colorado Springs Airport (COS), which is located about 11 miles east of central Colorado Springs. The city also features an affordable public bus system with more than 20 routes, many of which start or end in the downtown area. Another option is to swap four wheels for two: Many Colorado Springs streets have bike lanes and the city has a bike-share program called PikeRide, where you can borrow a bike for as little as USD 2.
