ORLANDO — Limousine operators and shuttle companies have joined rival Disney-contracted Mears Transportation Group to fight proposed changes planned by the Orlando International Airport. Officials are considering an overhaul of how travelers find and meet up with transportation companies by banning the companies from the terminal and installing information kiosks instead.

The proposal drew opposition at an airport public hearing from tourism organizations and more than 100 drivers. Airport officials say the kiosks are intended to cut down on illegal solicitations as well as prevent future crowding problems. While more public input will be accepted prior to the airport authority’s Dec. 14 meeting, at least some of the information booths have already been installed.
