Uber also reveals expanded ride-hailing service area across Metro Vancouver

Uber is now serving a wider expanse of the Metro Vancouver region as of today

On Monday, ride-hailing app Lyft announced it had significantly increased its service area, stretching to include almost all of Metro Vancouver. Not to be outdone, Uber has just revealed it, too, has opted to widen its scope.

Uber now boasts a service zone that also includes both Vancouver-area ferry terminals, all of communities Delta and Surrey, as well as Burnaby, Coquitlam, Langley City and White Rock — also going as far as the U.S. border line at crossings such as Peace Arch/Blaine and Tsawwassen/Point Roberts.

A quick search on the Uber app determined that an UberX from the Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver to the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal would cost just over $45 dollars, while an Uber XL would be just over $74. For a ride from the same starting point to Peace Arch in Surrey, an UberX is just over $55 — the same as Lyft.
