Lyft’s first international warning shot at Uber has been fired with its latest global expansion announcement. Its first stop – Toronto Canada, by the end of 2017.

“Our passports are packed, and we’re crossing the border,” said Lyft in a corporate blog post. “We’ve been looking forward to taking our brand of ridesharing international for some time, and we’re super pumped to share this with our close friends up north.”

As is customary with new city launches, Lyft is offering plenty of incentives, such as “power driver bonuses” of 25 percent on all rides for a driver’s first three months and referral credits. A Driver Hub office offering assistance with troubleshooting, recruiting, and outreach will be opened as well, operating similarly to Uber’s Greenlight operations in the U.S. Other incentives include first trip free for first-time users.

According to Lyft co-founder John Zimmer, 50,000 Toronto residents have already installed the app, despite the company not being in service yet.

In 2017, Lyft has grown at a blistering pace, launching in roughly 100 new cities across the country, cutting Uber’s market share from 84 percent to 73 percent. Similarly, availability in 2017 has grown from 54 percent to 95 percent in the U.S. market. According to an investor document, projected domestic growth is expected to comprise a third of all U.S. ride hails by the end of the year. However, Uber is light years ahead of Lyft with regards to international service, currently serving 77 countries and 40 million riders.

At the moment, Lyft is undergoing a $1 billion fundraising round through Alphabet investment firm CapitalG, bring its total valuation to $11 billion – up $3.5 billion from April. Previously, Alphabet invested in Uber before its self-driving legal squabble, leading to Lyft’s partnership with Waymo providing a network of driverless cars.

No specific timetable has been given for launch. However, Lyft has mentioned operations starting during the holiday season.
