HONOLULU —Honolulu leaders planned to vote Wednesday on a measure limiting prices that ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft can charge during peak demand, a cap that the companies say would be the first restriction of its kind in the United States. The measure would prevent “surge pricing” if increased rates are higher than the maximum fare set by the city. Uber sent emails to customers across the island of Oahu, which is where the rule would apply, urging them to oppose the rules that would impose “outdated taxi-style requirements on rideshare.” By Jennifer Sinco Kelleher.
