Transportation + Parking
My Free Ride
One of the best ways to get around Breckenridge is to hop on one of the Breckenridge Free Ride Buses. These buses and Main Street trolley are totally free and can get you up and down Main Street, to and from the mountain or your favorite activities and restaurants. To find out the best route or to check when the next bus arrives, download the My Free Ride App.
Although we highly recommend going without a car in Breckenridge, if you do need a car, be sure to download the Breck Park app, Passport Parking. Almost all lots and street parking is pay to park, and although there are kiosks you can pay with a credit card at, the app is great because it will send you a notification when your session is almost up, and you can add on time wherever you’re at. It’s no fun leaving mid-dinner to sprint to a meter to add more time. If you’re just running errands, just use your fist 15 minutes free on either the kiosk or app.
