The city of Phoenix decided Wednesday to delay putting new ground transportation fees in place at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport until after the Arizona Supreme Court rules whether the fee increases are constitutional.

In December, Phoenix City Council passed an ordinance that would hike fees for ground transportation services at the city-owned airport, with ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft seeing the biggest increase. The fee increase was slated to begin Feb. 1.

On Jan. 16, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said the city of Phoenix violated state law when it voted to increase fees and asked the Arizona Supreme Court to rule on the matter.
