NEED A LYFT FROM PEARSON? YOU CAN DO THAT

Airline passengers landing at Toronto’s Pearson airport can now arrange to be picked up – using their Uber and Lyft ride-hailing apps.

The Greater Toronto Airports Authority says Uber and Lyft customers can request rides at Canada’s biggest airport – under a pilot program that started today.

The service provides another option for the 47 million annual airport passengers – and 49,000 airport workers at Pearson.

Until now, ride-hailing services could only drop off passengers at the airport.

More than 200 North American airports, including Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton and Calgary offer full ride-hailing services.
