    When I arrive at the airport, is this clearly marked? Do I go into a parking garage? Do I get a tickrt? Does this cost any money?

    It's easy to follow the large road signs into the passager pick-up area. No garage, no ticket or money needed. Tell the person you're picking up what you're driving though... as you need to keep it moving once you spot them.

    There is also a cell phone lot near terminals 1 and 3 where you can wait for your passenger without a charge. They can call you when they arrive and you can pick them up at the appropriate terminal. As SO said, you will not be allowed to park at the terminal even for a few minutes.

    Best bet is the cell phone lot... and do not bother heading to terminal until they have their bags, or if carryon - wait until they board or exit the tram. You can pull up to curb and pick them up. If you want a calm experience, you could enter the parking garage and tell them where you are and they can come meet you.

    Also, get their flight number and check the "status" on the airlines website.

    I guess it depends if you want to meet them inside or at the curb. Tell us more.

    if you have to wait even a second for the passenger, beware of the security guards. They're big time pricks. Once I was literally the only car waiting to pick up my wife and her 78 year old mom and the guy immediately started threatening me with a ticket or towing even before I said a word. And they did this another time to someone else when they were waiting for me to walk down the long line, even tho that time there was only a handful of cars.

    The columns are numerically marked, too. Smart play is to have your passenger go to the highest number, as most people gather around the first few stalls.
