Arrival information: Once you have claimed your luggage, please proceed to level 1 — Ground Transportation. Present your voucher (either a hard copy of this coupon or a printout of your online confirmation) at the Mears Motor Shuttle counters, which are located in each terminal at either end of the car rental counters. You MUST present a hard copy of this coupon or the online confirmation upon check-in at the Mears ticket counter.

After redeeming your voucher for a boarding pass, you will be directed to the Mears Customer Service Representative curbside Level 1 (wearing a grey Mears Global shirt, with radio & clipboard). This person will place your name in a queue for the next available shuttle going to the hotel. Shuttles depart approximately every 20-30 minutes and may make up to 4 stops in route to your hotel.
