The Mass Transit Railway Corporation said last night it had dropped plans for a limousine service for Airport Express passengers after an outcry from taxi drivers who said it would jeopardise their business.

The company had planned to offer limo rides to the Airport Express stations at prices ranging from $250 to $450 from yesterday, but the idea was greeted with a barrage of protests from taxi operators. The move was to mark the second anniversary of the Airport Express.
