More NSW commuters will have access to dedicated parcel lockers at train stations, as the state government expands the trial of the “click and collect” service.
The parcel lockers allow commuters to order online parcels for delivery to a locker at their local train station, rather than their home.
Transport Minister Andrew Constance says the trial will be extended to Newtown station in Sydney’s inner west and Woy Woy station on the state’s Central Coast after a successful trial in Parramatta.
“We live in a convenience culture and this is another way we’re using technology to help make commuters’ lives easier,” Mr Constance said.
“We’re giving people the flexibility to order something online and pick it up on their way home.”
The parcel lockers, which are open 24 hours a day, are free to use.
Sydney Trains will review the extended trial to determine whether to roll out the lockers at more stations.
