THE BRONX - A dispatching service that operates at the Gateway Center Mall and local cabbies are at loggerheads over new fees.

The Diplo Dispatching Service's exclusive contract at the mall allows it to charge cab drivers a $1.50 fee for an access card to the parking lot and a $1 fee every time a cabbie leaves with a passenger.

Cab drivers who work at the mall say the added expenses are passed onto customers and hurt their business.
