Shop 'til your stop at more stations

Posted by Transport for NSW on

More customers will be able to pick up online purchases at train stations following the successful trial of Australia Post parcel lockers at Parramatta Station.

Newtown and Woy Woy are the next stops to get dedicated parcel lockers installed after the trial at Parramatta saw close to 8,000 parcels collected by Sydney Trains customers so far in the last year.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said this was the next phase of the trial with Australia Post.

“We live in a convenience culture, and this is another way we’re using technology to help make commuters’ lives easier.

We’re giving people the flexibility to order something online and pick it up on their way home,” Mr Constance said.

The expansion of this trial comes during the NSW Government’s first public consultation period for the Future Transport Strategy.

“We want to hear about innovations like this as well as big projects that will revolutionise public transport in Sydney,” Mr Constance said.

Australia Post General Manager Rowan Howarth said parcel lockers give customers more choice and convenience, allowing them to pick up their parcel at a time and location that’s most convenient to them.

“Instead of having your parcel sent to your home address you can have it sent directly to a 24/7 parcel locker so you never need to miss an important delivery again.

And best of all, it’s absolutely free to use,” Mr Howarth said. Australia Post parcel lockers will be installed at Newtown and Woy Woy in the next few months.

Sydney Trains will review the success of this extended trial to determine whether to roll out Click and Collect lockers to other stations.
