With roots in Colorado’s mountains and over 10 years of transportation experience, Peak 1 Express understands mountain travel like no other. When it comes to calling the Vail Valley home, we recognize the difficulties of arranging airport transportation for yourself, or for out of town family and friends. We also understand that winter and holiday travel can prove extra stressful for Vail Valley visitors and locals alike.
For these reasons, Peak 1 Express was founded to ease mountain travel, operating with the goal of providing direct and convenient transportation between mountain communities and the Front Range. We currently offer the most scheduled time and trip options of any mountain shuttle provider, with our services intended to streamline travel for Vail residents to Denver International Airport and beyond.
Why Peak 1 Express?
Across all services, we prioritize guest safety and comfort, with reliable airport shuttles and drivers you can count on. You get to sit back, relax, and even use our complimentary Wi-Fi to surf Netflix while we do the driving! Your out-of-town family members can skip the rental car and stress over navigating snowy Colorado roads because nobody enjoys driving on I-70, especially in the winter months.
Whether you are traveling for the holidays or expecting family, our expanded Vail Valley shuttle schedule makes sure no one is left waiting on transportation. No matter when your flight lands or takes off, our airport shuttles will get you or your family there in time for all the festivities.
What Vail Valley Services Does Peak 1 Express Offer?
Our Vail Valley services include shared shuttles and private charters between Vail and Denver International Airport (DIA), as well as private charter service between Eagle Airport (EGE) and the Vail Valley. Our shared airport shuttles encompass door-to-door services, as well as a centralized discount location in Vail.
Door-to-door shared shuttles conveniently pick up and drop off our guests directly at their homes or lodging, while guests choosing our most affordable discount shuttle service will pick-up and drop-off at the Vail Transfer Center. With a private charter, your entire party of up to 14 can ride comfortably all together, without any stops for other passengers. This option is ideal for weddings, large families, or corporate groups. For smaller parties seeking a private transportation experience, our 5-person SUVs ensure your ride is comfortable and convenient.

How Do We Prioritize Guest Safety in Winter Conditions?
We understand that winter driving through the mountains (even for Colorado natives!) can be difficult. For this reason, opting for a ride with Peak 1 Express can ease everyone’s stress. To optimize winter travel, we prepare, plan, and communicate, with guest safety always our first priority.
1. Weather Monitoring and Communication
On every ride with Peak 1 Express, our drivers maintain constant communication with our dispatch team who monitor weather, Colorado I-70 road conditions, and closures of the Eisenhower Tunnel or Vail Pass. Dispatchers also track shuttles and advise drivers of potential hazards or difficult conditions. In inclement weather, dispatchers carefully consider alternate routes and follow storm protocol, prioritizing our guests’ safety every step of the way.
2. Our Winterized Vehicle Fleet
Before they’re ready to hit the road, our vehicles are inspected and any necessary repairs taken care of. Vehicles additionally undergo regular safety checks, and drivers carry chains and traction devices, ready to be utilized if necessary to tackle winter road conditions and meet Colorado traction laws.
3. Our Highly-Trained Drivers
Our drivers receive specialized training in winter driving techniques, including navigating mountainous areas. They additionally learn how to respond in situations of inclement weather and how to outfit vehicles with chains if necessary. Drivers undertake the route to the mountains multiple times per day and are well-versed in navigating your Vail Valley drive!
