Lyft Line has launched in Toronto, marking the first time the ride sharing company’s carpool service has expanded internationally.
According to Lyft, “Line is designed to reduce the number of cars on the road and offer a more affordable transportation option by encouraging passengers to share the ride.”
Line allows riders to connect with others going the same way and “always costs less than standard Lyft,” as passengers split the cost of the ride with each other. Essentially, the service is like Uber’s equivalent, which is called UberPOOL.
Lyft says Line is “available when requests are in high demand based on traffic patterns,” which lets the company bring “new sustainable and affordable transportation options to the city.”
To celebrate the launch of Lyft Line, riders can get $10 off a ride to King Street between Bathurst and Jarvis with promo code KINGSTREETPILOT through April 8. If you’ve never used Lyft before, enter promo code NICK33847 when signing up for $10 off.
