Phoenix Halts Rideshare Fee Hike At Airport Until Court Ruling

Arizona's attorney general says the city of Phoenix has decided not to move ahead with higher fees for ride-hailing companies at Sky Harbor Airport until a court rules on the issue.

The increased fees for pickups and drop-offs at the Phoenix airport was scheduled to take effect on February 1.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich says the city's decision came after his office filed a petition with the state Supreme Court seeking to overturn the ordinance and have the fees declared unconstitutional.

Uber has said it would stop serving Sky Harbor on January 31 if the $4 fee wasn't repealed or blocked.
