(Reuters) - Ride service Uber said on Thursday it is suspending its operations in Boise, Idaho, after reaching an impasse in negotiations with city leaders over new regulations.

"Steep and growing costs that come from offering thousands of free rides combined with unworkable and onerous regulations being proposed by the City leave Uber no other choice than to suspend operations in Boise for the foreseeable future," the company said in a blog post.
