Colorado Springs Airport (COS)
Orientation and Maps
(Colorado Springs, Colorado (CO), USA)
The second-biggest city in the state of Colorado and located close to the world-famous Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs is especially appealing during the summer months. The city is also fairly busy outside of this peak season and many people head to Colorado Springs during the winter months, to enjoy the spectacular natural scenery around the red sandstone structures in the Garden of the Gods, which attract around two million visitors every year.
On the eastern side of the city and off the US-24 (East Fountain Boulevard), the Colorado Springs Municipal Airport (COS) is situated along Drennan Road and is a popular alternative to the more northern Denver International Airport (DEN). Buses around the area are run by TMN&O and link nearby Cheyenne, Pueblo and Wyoming, with the terminal being located on Weber Street. The Colorado Springs transportation center can be found on East Kiowa Street and features route maps for all of the bus lines, of which there are more than 30.
