Arrival Transportation

Airport Runs

Airport Runs at the end of semester in the fall will be the day after the last day of finals and in the spring the day after graduation.

The bus or van will leave Otero at 6:00 am arriving at Denver International Airport between 9:30 and 10:00 am. Please keep this in mind and book your flight to leave after 12 noon. If you have to book a flight that leaves earlier, book it for the day after the airport run and stay over in Denver so that you can make your flight.

Alternate Arrival Transportation

If you are unable to get a flight that arrives at the scheduled Otero International Pick-up/Drop-off times, you will need to find another means of getting to La Junta. Here are some options that you might want to consider. La Junta has an AMTRAK station and so it is possible to fly into a number of airports and then take the AMTRAK to Otero College. Airports that are near AMTRAK stations include:

  • Albuquerque Sunport Airport
  • Kansas City International Airport
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport
  • Los Angeles International Airport

To find ticket prices for arriving by train check AMTRAK.

In addition, there is a Greyhound Bus line that runs from Denver International Airport to La Junta. Please note that there are limited public transportation systems in La Junta and you will need to coordinate with the International Relations Office, a coach, or friend for pick up from the AMTRAK station or Greyhound bus station.
