"Lyft has grown considerably this past year, and Toronto was a no brainer for the company's first global launch".
Lyft service will be available in Toronto by the holidays. "We expect that to happen, and we see it as a city that really shares the value that we have at Lyft - focusing on people taking care of people, treating people well, treating people with mutual respect and promoting both inclusion and diversity". The company will begin driver recruitment today. The company is also beginning to sign up potential drivers now in advance of its rollout of its service.
