Lyft to begin service in Metro Vancouver’s Tri-Cities on Monday

Residents of Metro Vancouver’s Tri-Cities area will have access to both major ridesharing services starting Monday.

That’s according to Port Coquitlam Mayor Brad West, who told Global News that Lyft is ready to begin serving PoCo, Coquitlam and Port Moody.

Uber already operates in the three communities.

“This has been a longstanding issue in our community, in particular because Port Coquitlam doesn’t have SkyTrain,” said West.

“We’re close in that SkyTrain is over in Coquitlam, but you know, we have a lot of folks who had challenges … and it’s been really frustrating for a number of people.

“It’s not a silver bullet, but it is something that helps.”
