Amazon in talks with TFL for package pickup at Tube stations

If you’re a Londoner then you no doubt get on the London Underground at least once a day, so wouldn’t it be convenient if you could make more use out of Tube stations other than just a place to catch the train? Well Amazon wants to put those stations to good use by installing lockers where packages can be delivered and picked up. It’s not the first time we’ve seen Amazon deliver to lockers – but it’s by far the most convenient place.

With TFL getting rid of all manned ticket offices, and the tube set to run 24 hours on certain lines – it seems that the Tube will be an entirely different place in 2015, although Amazon has yet to confirm it’s in talks, so we’ll just have to cross our fingers and hope until we hear something official.
