Not only is it possible to enjoy your vacation at Aspen Snowmass without a car, it is totally doable. Pedestrian-friendly streets, free shuttles, reliable public transportation and numerous limo and taxi companies make sure that you can ditch the car for your visit.
Both downtown Aspen and Snowmass Village are pedestrian friendly. In Snowmass Village, the Mall and Base Village areas are also perfect for strolling. In Aspen, Cooper and Hyman Avenues (between Mill and Galena Streets) and Mill St. (between Hyman and Durant Avenues) are closed to vehicles, creating a wonderful pedestrian mall.
The RFTA or Roaring Fork Transit Authority (which locals simply call “Rafta”) connects riders with all the important points in the valley. Convenient schedules and (more importantly) ski and snowboard racks make them a popular choice for visiting the four mountains of Aspen Snowmass. Visit RFTA’s website to learn more about schedules and fares.
