Not that I know of.

However, you can get to the hyatt by taking the blue line. It's walking distance from Union station (where you'll be dropped off.) Get off the on 2nd to last stop. (In the direction towards O'hare.)

The stop is Rosemont. Then once you are off there, it's another short walk to the hyatt. You'll see which way once you go outside. The hyatt is pretty hard to miss. Lol

No, they dont offer a shuttle- Ive take the Megabus every year,and while I've sucessfullly gotten to the Hyatt by blue line, I can tell you its kind of a pain with luggage. The blue line by Union Station has a lot of stairs and they are narrow- so you need to move fast to avoid being trampled by people behind you. Also you have to be prepared to lug it up the stairs as well. Not to mention down the road when you get off the bus and again when you get off the line to the sidewalk. Last year I took a cab there and back. While it cost me like $30 - it was worth not having to deal with it.

the Union station is downtown Chicago so yeah, as others said, take the Blue line. It's pretty cheap and it'll take about 40-45 mins at the last stop if I recall. There's no way you can be lost if you see other cosplayers and what not going towards the hotel.
