Lyft is expanding to Toronto, its first worldwide city

Lyft is planning to make its first trip outside the U.S.by carrying passengers in Toronto. "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".

Lyft announced Monday it would expand its service to Toronto in time to "help ring in the holidays". John Zimmer, the company's president and co-founder, told the Toronto Star that he expected the Canadian city to eventually become one of Lyft's five largest markets.

Lyft is now available in its first worldwide city: Toronto.

Toronto city council introduced rules to allow the service to operate legally past year. The company said it had not yet determined pricing but added, "we'll pretty quickly get to parity on.pricing with Uber".
