*The traveler passing through [[Denver]] will be wise to note the presence of several Mexican bus companies. More affordable, more comfortable, more reliable, and with noteably nicer co-passengers than the Dirty Dog (greyhound), these companies can take you to Kansas City, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Southern California, and of course, Mexico. If you've got a few bucks and you don't feel like thumbing your way out of suburban sprawl, head over the area between Welton and Champa between 19th and 22nd streets. Autobuses Los Paisanos, Los Limosines, Autobuses Americanos and others can get you to Mexico for 50-60 dollars.

== Experiences ==
:''I would not hesitate to claim Colorado as the easiest state in America to hitchhike in. Anywhere west of the front range is incredibly easy. If you are like me you will wish You might start wishing people would stop picking you up so fast so you could 'll have more time to absorb the scenery. I have been through hitchhiked almost all of the every US and State highways highway in Colorado and a few many of the County Roads and wait times have averaged about 15 minutes depending on traffic.'' - [[User:Thewindandrain|Thewindandrain]] 0([[User talk:17Thewindandrain|talk]]) 03:2650, 6 8 March 2012 2013 (CET)
