Uber, Lyft Drop Threats To Stop Serving Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport

Uber and Lyft are backing down from their threats to stop serving Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport over higher fees.

An Uber spokesperson confirmed the decision on Friday, matching a decision announced earlier in the week by Lyft.

The Arizona Supreme Court this month rejected a challenge to the new $4 pickup and drop-off fees, clearing the way for the airport to implement them.

The airport previously charged Uber and Lyft $2.66 for pickups and nothing for drop-offs.

The Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature is considering a bill to reverse the city's fees, but the legislative session is on hold due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.
