The ride-sharing service Lyft is reportedly negotiating a deal with Albany airport. 

With Lyft and Uber expected to begin service in upstate New York in about two months, published reports indicate the company has reached out to the Albany Airport Authority to negotiate a deal to provide service to and from the airport.  

In the meantime, the Times-Union says the Authority has approved its own plan to issue operating permits for ride-sharing companies that would involve a $2 pickup and $2 drop-off fee per car, and a one-time fee of $5 thousand to set up service.  

Paper says the airport and Uber have not yet been in touch.
