HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The ride-hailing service Uber is set to start business in Huntsville.

Uber tells local media outlets that the service will start Friday at 4 p.m., though last-minute glitches could change that slightly.

Uber connects drivers with riders via a cellphone app. Rides are billed to the customer’s credit card, and no cash changes hands.

The Huntsville City Council approved a revision to the city’s vehicle for hire ordinance in February, allowing ride sharing companies like Uber to operate inside the city.

The Huntsville International Airport is one place Uber isn’t cleared to operate.
