Gov. Doug Ducey said he thinks it’s likely the Phoenix City Council’s decision last month to impose higher fees on ride-hailing pickups and drop-offs at Sky Harbor Airport will be legally blocked.

“It’s pretty easy to see that this is going to be overturned upon a challenge,” he told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Gaydos in the Afternoon on Monday.

He said the plan is a “bad idea” that doesn’t align with what people have signaled they want.

“Why are they trying to change consumer behavior when people are using this because it’s convenient, because they can’t rely on a taxi and because they don’t want to take the train?” he said.

“I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if she’s got a Plan B that’s she working on to fix this, because it needs to be fixed,” he said.
