Uber, Lyft confirm Phoenix airport business as usual for now

The companies said they will continue operations until the Arizona Supreme Court rules on proposed fee increases.

Ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft say they won't change their service at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport until Arizona's highest court rules on proposed fee increases to pick up and drop off customers.

Both issued statements Wednesday confirming operations will continue while they wait for the Arizona Supreme Court to rule. Uber and Lyft had threatened to stop providing airport services if the fees took effect Saturday as originally planned.

The court will hear arguments in March on a challenge to a city ordinance that raised the companies' fees by $4 for rides to and from the airport.
