It does not pull into the hotel driveway like a Super Shuttle, but for the Hyatt, it stops directly across the street. The cost is $2.75 cash each way and the pickup location is next to the taxi stand on the baggage claim level. 
  • Uber and Lyft are also available at the airport and their pickup location is on the baggage claim level, to your left as you exit the building. The fare is approximately $20 one way.
