ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) - Uber has stopped its service at Southern California's Ontario International Airport because of fee increases.

The ride-hailing company ceased operations at Ontario at one minute after midnight Friday.

The San Bernardino Sun says the airport east of Los Angeles recently began charging Uber and its app-based competitors $4 for a pickup and $4 for a drop-off.

Uber called the charges unfair because taxi cabs and limousines are assessed a single $3 fee.

Ontario said in a statement last month that Lyft, Uber's main competitor, will continue to operate at the airport.
