Because we can't be bothered to drive to McDonalds anymore, the company announced Thursday that they will soon be testing out a new delivery service in select Florida cities.

The new service through UberEATS will be available in January of 2017, and will include 200 restaurants in Orlando, Tampa and Miami, said a spokesperson with UberEATS to USA Today.

McDonalds already uses a few other third party delivery services (often with higher fees), but UberEATS says they'll ferry your Big Mac for a mere $5 delivery fee.

Customers will be able to order from either the UberEATS app or website.
