The online shuttle price from Frisco/Dillon/Silverthorne to DIA is more reasonable then Steamboat.  If you take the Grays route, you can probably get a ride from the trailhead.  If you just go to Idaho Springs, you can shower in the community center and then get the Greyhound to Denver.
Both Frisco and Steamboat have a Greyhound to Denver.  
You can hitch from Berthoud Pass or Grand Lake and take the bus the rest of the way to Denver.  
I have taken the bus from Rawlins to Denver many times. In 2013, it was stopping at the truckstop on 80.  Getting to Rawlins by June 28th will be difficult.

You will probably not be at one of these places on the exact day you need to fly.  So allow a couple days to wait or  hike slow.  
Most people find it difficult to hike from Cumbres Pass to Canada in the ideal weather window (about June 10 to September 10).  
It sounds like you are "cheating early" by the appropriate amount.  You might want to look at journals of other nobos (trailjournals.com postholer.com etc) and find some hikers who have similar abilities based on your AT or PCT times.  You can get a better idea of start time, CO entry date, and June 28 location.  When you get closer to your start, you can focus on years with similar snow.
