Governor Andrew Cuomo is looking to reach a deal on the controversial livery cab bill Wednesday.

He will be holding a summit with the stakeholders involved in the legislation negotiations.

The proposed bill would allow the city to issue 30,000 livery cab medallions so drivers can pick up street hails in Upper Manhattan and the other four boroughs.

Cuomo said he will veto the bill unless it includes a provision to make more cabs wheelchair-accessible.

Dozens of livery cabs circled Cuomo's Manhattan office Monday in hopes of pushing him to take action.
