Bermuda Airport Shuttles
There are several airport shuttle operators in Bermuda who provide pickup and drop services. The services are provided for individuals, families and large groups. You can prearrange the shuttle service by calling them up and making advance reservations. You have an option to book for one-way or round trip transfers. The rates are on a per person basis for group transfers and lower than private transfers. However in group transfers, the van or minibus used may drop other passengers in their respective hotels along the way and therefore may take a bit longer time in the transfer.
While the rates would vary depending on your destination, an approximate rate for a 2-way transfer to & from Hamilton for group transfer is about $30. Some hotels like Pompano Beach club have special arrangements through shuttle service companies who offer special rates for transfers to/from such hotels. You will find such information in their websites.

Check out Bermuda Bus Services to know about the schedules and other information.
NOTE: You won't get bus tickets, tokens or passes from the Airport. One is not allowed to carry luggage like a suitcase in the public buses either. So in general public bus is not a transfer option from/to the airport for the passengers travelling by flight. These buses are mostly used by the airport staffs. One can however pay in cash (in exact change) and board a bus from the airport provided one is carrying no heavy luggage.
