Ride-hailing service Lyft, Uber's greatest rival, plans to start picking up passengers in Ottawa in the next few weeks.

The company has confirmed its plans to expand into Ottawa after moving into the Toronto region late last year.

"We've very deliberate and intentional about which cities to enter into, and Ottawa was a natural fit for us," said Aaron Zifkin, the managing director of Lyft Canada.

The company is staying quiet about an official launch date, except to say that it will be in the next few weeks.
