Ride-calling giant Uber said drivers will be on the road less than 24 hours after they were given the green light to operate in Metro Vancouver.

In an email to users, the company says the car will be on the road in Vancouver on Friday morning.

Uber and Lyft both, licensed by the City of Vancouver Thursday afternoon, just hours after the provincial Passenger Transportation Board approved them to operate in the lower mainland.

Because the company has a business license in Vancouver, traveling from within the city limits is the only one available, according to the official license. People can travel to surrounding towns as long as they were picked up in Vancouver.

Other cities in the region have not made an announcement regarding licensing.

There is still no word on when man landed at Vancouver International Airport will be able to use a one-ride service call to get them home from Richmond, for example.
