How many additional stops and how much extra time is typical with SuperShuttle?

I'm far from the RTD expert, but could you take Uber/Lyft to the W line and use that to get to Union Station and the A line?

I drove my next door neighbor to catch RTD a few weeks ago at 3:30 am. It was a short drive, so it wasn't a big deal. They are excellent neighbors and I was happy to do them a favor.

If I was certain an Uber/Lyft would definitely available at that hour, I'd just take it to the airport. It's not about saving $20 to add 30+ minutes to the trip to the airport and dragging bags around the train station.

Barry, if you go to the SuperShuttle website, there are options for shared ride for one fee and non-stop ride for a higher fee. I entered my old address in Centennial and it was $29 one way shared and $66 one way for non-stop. You tell them what time your flight is and they will tell you what time they will pick you up.

Seems to be the most stress-free way, unless you want a private town car LOL.

Just make sure you allow plenty of time. I took someone to DIA recently at 4 a.m. and in addition to major construction and lane closures on Pena, the security line was very long and slow.

What are my options for transportation at that hour? I suspect there wouldn't be any Uber drivers roaming around at that time.
Been driving uber/lyft for a month now, if you are within 15ish mins of downtown Denver you'll have a number of drivers working overnight finished with bar jobs and looking for the fare you are offering. How many depends on the day of the week, less out there Tuesday thru Thursday morning. That said, I'll make myself available if you provide the details.

I've found Super Shuttle to be a huge pain in the butt. Rarely on time, too many stops, and for around the same price +/- $10-$15 can take Uber or Lyft.

I've taken Uber/Lyft at all hours - just give a little extra time, but still less time than you'd need waiting on a shuttle.

You can also schedule Uber pickups on the app now. It's likely not going to be an issue.

There are plenty of smart drivers available at that hour. They love the airport rides. I use them almost every week. Usually do a 7:00am flight sometimes 6:00am and never have a problem.

I haven't used Uber for a few months. At that time, all the schedule feature did was put the time you wanted in, and then about 5 minutes before the appointed time, it made the request active.

Does schedule work differently now where it actually alerts or looks for a driver more than a few minutes be the scheduled time?

I've never used it so not sure. Like I said, never had a problem just calling a ride at that hour.
