    It’s not just about paying for parking (mostly private business), but the costs of maintaining I-70 and other roads for people to get to the airport. Maybe to maintain the roads that only reach the airport, we should turn it into a toll road. Unless Denver/CDOT have other methods of paying for the road with airport dollars? It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to make it cheaper to drive out to the airport. It takes more time, wares down the road, and the pollution caused. So the train is actually going to be cheaper in every sense when you factor in the true cost of driving out to the airport.
