It appears Uber will have some fresh competition in the city as popular USA ridesharing company Lyft expands to Toronto.

Given Lyft's staying focused on Toronto, it's unclear whether or not you can go truly insane and order a ride to, say, Vancouver.

Since its inception, Lyft has kept its operations firmly within the borders of the US. Several thousand drivers indicated an interest through Lyft's US website before recruiting started Monday, he added.

One likely expansion target for Lyft after Toronto is London.

A cloudy and cold Sunday with some light rain
We will have afternoon highs in the upper 70s prior to the front arriving, then will cool down to the mid 50s overnight. There is a chance for scattered showers Monday morning, it is cloudy, and highs are in the low 50s.

Toronto city council introduced rules to allow the service to operate legally previous year.

Lyft Chief Executive Logan Green has said the San Francisco company plans further global expansion.

"We see an opportunity for ourselves in providing a better experience for everyone involved", said Houghton, in a swipe at its largest rival.

Uber arrived in Canada several years ago and has fought an uphill regulatory battle ever since, leaving it banned or pushed out of some Canadian cities as the taxi cab industry dug in its heels against new competition from unlicensed platforms.

Carrie Underwood on the mend after breaking wrist in fall
The American Idol alum has since been released from the hospital, but her rep said the injury would "take some time" to heal. Fans of Underwood will remember that her bassist, Mark Childer, set her up with his hockey playing friend, Mike Fisher .

Uber also considered pulling out of Quebec. CEO Logan Green says that they've been working toward the move for "months" with the Canadian market seeming like "an obvious fit" for the Lyft brand and culture.

The ride-hailing startup announced in a blog post today that it will start serving passengers in Toronto next month.

Lyft will serve the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and plans to launch by the end of the year.

Advances to Championship Round of Chase
This left only one spot remaining for five drivers, but it was the No. 2 vehicle driver who punched his ticket with some help. The final race of the season comes next Sunday with the Ford Ecoboost 400 from Homestead-Miami Speedway.
