First Things First

Getting to Downtown Cheyenne is easy! The Downtown Express Shuttle runs daily, July 19-28, between Frontier Park and downtown. The FREE shuttle sponsored by the Downtown Development Authority departs behind the “CHEYENNE” sign on Lincolnway between Central Avenue and Warren Avenue every half hour beginning at 10:00 am. It departs from CFD, west of the main entrance at the tour bus parking. The bus is handicapped accessible. 

Downtown Parking Information

Parking is available along city streets on a first-come/first-served basis. However, watch the time, as there is a 2-hour limit in most areas, and we'd rather you take home a cool souvenir rather than a parking ticket.

Anyone may park in any of the City of Cheyenne's parking structures

Fee Information: FREE for the first two hours. After two hours, there is a $4.00 flat rate.
