Thank the maker it’s Friday and the weekend is almost here. Lyft and Uber got approved to operate in the greater Vancouver area today. That was probably the best news I heard all week. I downloaded the Lyft app and got it all setup. It might be just hearsay but the rumour is Lyft is slightly ahead of Uber in being ready to deploy their drivers in Vancouver. If all goes well, people could be using Lyft in Vancouver in a matter of months.
