I’d like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season {{first_name}}. As we head into the holidays, consider ordering a meal or two from a local restaurant – one of the best ways to support a local business. If ordering direct from the restaurant, that order might be fulfilled from a Lyft driver. Ordering something from Skip-the-Dishes? It might be coming from one of their “dark” stores rather than a convenience store. Walking out to catch a bus? Check Transit app – if the bus has been cancelled, it will now show crossed out. And soon, residents in the Greater Toronto area may be able to board a quiet electric GO bus. These stories and more below. Stay safe, be joyful!
