Uber to pull out of Sky Harbor Airport on Jan. 31 if rideshare fee goes into effect

Uber says it will pull out of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport on Jan. 31 if the new rideshare fees go into effect.

In a letter to the City of Phoenix's Aviation Department, Uber said that 'in the event the Airport or City does not place a hold on the implementation of the proposed TNC fee increase, they will cease their operations at the airport staring on 11:59 p.m. on January 31, 2020."

The rideshare app's decision to pull out of Sky Harbor Airport comes after the Phoenix City Council approved a rideshare fee increase for $4 each way.

Uber sent another letter to Phoenix city leaders last month threatening to pull out. Lyft has also threatened to pull out as well. But it's unknown at this time if Lyft will also cease Sky Harbor operations on Jan. 31.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich recently filed a special action with the Arizona Supreme Court over the proposed rideshare fees. Brnovich said he also wants to the high court to halt the increase as they look into the case.
