NEW ORLEANS - On Thursday, the New Orleans city council members have a big vote before them regarding airport cab service.

Leaders will decide whether new requirements for city cabs, should also apply to airport cabs.

Officials said requirements for airport taxis is the last major piece of the taxi reform package.

Many taxi drivers have protested the measure, which requires them to upgrade their vehicles and to provide such amenities as credit card machines, GPS devices and cameras.

The requirements have already been approved by the Aviation Board.
