Lyft revealed that it has once again expanded its operating region across Metro Vancouver.

Starting Monday, the rideshare company will begin serving two regions between Horseshoe Bay and the US Border, as well as UBC and Langley.

Passengers will be able to access Lyft’s services at the Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen ferry terminals, White Rock, Langley, and all of West Vancouver.

“We’ve heard loud and clear that Lyft users would like to see us operating in a larger region,” says Peter Lukomskyj, General Manager for Lyft in British Columbia. “We’re thrilled to now be offering service from Horseshoe Bay to the US Border, and UBC to Langley.”

Lukomskyj adds that the company is still working towards growing its fleet of drivers, as well as preparing for its next expansion. Today’s announcement builds off February’s expansion when Lyft began serving Richmond, New Westminster, and North Surrey.

At the end of February, the CIty of Vancouver also announced that it had approved a third ride-hailing business license, for Richmond-headquartered Kabu-Ride Inc (Kabu).

The Kabu-Ride app has already completed 1.3 million rides for more than 70,000 customers, according to its website.
