NEW YORK — Amazon filed a patent application for delivering packages via public transit — turning buses, trains, subways and other vehicles into roaming pickup locations, GeekWire reported.
The patent is essentially an Amazon Locker on wheels, installed inside or attached to the outside of a bus, train or other form of transit, according to the report. Customers who ride a particular route regularly could opt to have a package delivered to their preferred bus, to retrieve while they’re riding. Or those in a specific area could choose to pick up their package at a bus stop, receiving a text message when their item is approaching. For the full story, click here.
