You have to have practically lived under a rock during the last decade if you don't know what Uber is. This app arguably started everything. It's the benchmark for many ride-hailing transportation programs out there. And to this day, most if not all countries who have it have benefitted from its services big time. This, of course, includes Canada. With Uber, you can book a luxury car and get to wherever you need to be comfortable and with ease. It's most useful if you have to get to your destination looking intact and proper, such as special events, big meetings, or even job interviews.
Lyft, on the other hand, is probably Uber's biggest rival in the West. Most western countries have this app, including, of course, Canada. Perhaps the biggest ace this program has against its biggest competitor is its pricing. More often than not, Lyft's prices are a lot lower than Uber's and other ride-hailing apps, even when the distance is the same. But comfort and efficiency remain the same. You could still get similarly excellent service with Lyft as you would with other similar platforms. Some might even argue that the quality of service with this company is comparatively higher!
