US cab aggregator Lyft has finally gone international with Toronto launch on Tuesday. Lyft service in Toronto includes standard Lyft service, Lyft Plus, Lyft Premiere, Lyft Lux and Lyft Lux SUV rides. It also can be used to hail a ride to and from Toronto’s Pearson Airport for travelers.


Lyft's international foray comes as arch rival Uber finds itself mired in hundreds of legal battles both within US and outside. Lyft raised $1 billion in October, in a financing round led by CapitalG, the growth investment fund of Alphabet.

The Canadian expansion was announced last month at a time when rival Uber has opted out of operating in Quebec, Canada's second-most populous province, to avoid following tough new regulations for drivers.

To mark the launch, Lyft is offering $5 off your first ride and round-up-based donations to the SickKids Foundation.
