GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Metro Cab, which said earlier Thursday that it would be shutting down in the Grand Rapids area, is staying open.

The company said it was going to have to end operations because it couldn’t reach a contract agreement with the Gerald R. Ford International Airport, which accounts for much of its business.

On Thursday night, airport officials said they did reach a new deal. Details of the agreement were not available.

Under the old contract, which expired Wednesday, Metro paid the airport for its drivers to have the right to park at a designated cab stand.

Other taxis can service the airport when called by customers.
