A potential change in the way taxicabs operate at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport drew a passionate, and occasionally testy, response from drivers who say the overhaul could thwart their ability to earn a living.

The MAC, which operates MSP, suggested the ordinance in the wake of a transportation marketplace changing due to the rising popularity of services such as UberX and Lyft.

Currently, cabdrivers must pay an upfront fee of $3,350 to serve the airport. The MAC is exploring whether to lower that fee to $100 a year, and to tack on a $4-per-trip fee.
