Lyft just made a big announcement that you will adore if you need to travel to further away areas in Metro Vancouver. As of now, we can hail rides all the way to the U.S. thanks to Lyft's new expansion policy. On Monday, March 2, 2020, Lyft announced that it will be expanding its services across most of Metro Vancouver. Lyft Vancouver will also be providing rides to ferry terminal points, so we don't have to worry about taking the bus ever again. 

In a press release to Narcity, Lyft confirmed that it is now going to be serving a region that stretches all the way from Horseshoe Bay to the U.S. Border, and from the University of British Columbia to Langley. 

It also becomes the only rideshare company offering an option for passengers to get to "Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen ferry terminals, White Rock and Langley, as well as all of West Vancouver." 

Lyft and its famous competitor, Uber, touched down in Vancouver just over a month ago and has already seen a lot of opposition from local cab companies

But it looks like Lyft is not letting those tensions get in its way.

General Manager of Lyft Vancouver, Peter Lukomskyj said in the press statement, "We will continue working hard to grow our driver community and serve the full region as soon as possible."

So it could get even better.

CTV News reported that earlier this month, Lyft added Richmond, Westminster, and North Surrey to its available destinations.

On Friday, the mayor of Port Coquitlam also expressed delight at Lyft coming to his town in addition to Port Moody and Coquitlam.

Getting around B.C. just got way easier. This super-convenient map shows you how Lyft has extended its service across Metro Vancouver. 

Seeing how there are some unbelievable spots to visit on the other side of the border, this extension makes our travel plans all the sweeter. Let the road trips commence.
