(Reuters) – Ride-hailing firm Lyft Inc said on Monday it would launch its service in Toronto, marking the first international expansion for the U.S.-based rival of Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL]. “Before you know it, Lyft will be coming to you live in Toronto,” the company said in a blogpost, without giving a launch date. http://lft.to/2AFQ5at Lyft is crossing into Canada 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. Lyft raised $1 billion (£764.4 million) in October, in a financing round led by CapitalG, the growth investment fund of Alphabet Inc <GOOGL.O> and had in September hired an initial public offering advisory firm.
