It's another move in Lyft's plan to compete with rival Uber, which now is in 77 countries. The company announced it would be launching in Toronto, Canada by the end of this year.

This is a significant expansion not just for Canadians and residents of Toronto, however; Lyft moving into a market outside the USA signals it might now be ready for more ambitious worldwide growth.

Now, Lyft is giving Uber a run for its money.

Lyft is growing beyond its home market of the US, with a launch planned next month in Toronto, the largest city in Canada.
