Lyft officially launched in Toronto today, marking the ride-hailing company’s first expansion outside of the United States. Aviva’s commercial policy provides comprehensive coverage to all registered Lyft vehicles, drivers and passengers.

“From the moment Lyft drivers make themselves available to accept a ride request via the Lyft app to the moment passengers exit the vehicle, Lyft’s commercial insurance policy with Aviva Canada provides coverage,” Melissa Gale, Lyft’s senior manager, risk solutions, said in a statement.

In addition to the commercial policy that covers Lyft drivers, Aviva offers a separate ride-sharing product, which provides additional coverages such as a waiver of depreciation for new vehicles, loss of use to replace a vehicle while it’s under repair and increased income replacement as part of accident benefits.

Aviva is advising anyone who wants to drive with Lyft to contact their insurance broker or advisor.
