Passengers arriving at Logan Airport now have a new way to get home after their flights land.

Starting Wednesday morning, Drivers for ride-hailing services Uber and Lyft are allowed to pick up passengers from the busy travel hub after both companies reached deals with the Massachusetts Port Authority.

Logan was one of the last large airports in the country that didn’t allow the ride hailing services. A bill signed by Gov. Charlie Baker in August that regulated the services in Massachusetts gave Massport the go-ahead to allow them at the airport.

For cabbies, the arrival of ride-hailing service at Logan means the loss of their last exclusive territory — in an industry that has seen revenues drop 40 percent since 2012.

Cabbies have long argued that expensive regulations have left them stuck in the mud — hundreds of thousands of dollars for the required medallions, insurance, and cab upgrades — almost all of which ride-hailing services have skirted with an app-based business model.
