Amazon is to install collection lockers at Finchley Central and Newbury Park Tube stations, allowing passengers and local residents to collect purchases on their way to or from work.
The deal is part of London Underground’s strategy to transform the network into a wider community service and follows similar agreements with Tesco and Waitrose to place collection points in six stations.
Revenue raised from such partnerships will be re-invested back into the network, reducing Transport for London’s reliance on fares revenue and potentially allowing the Mayor to keep fares increases to a minimum.
Graeme Craig, TfL’s Director of Commercial Development, said: “We’re delighted to have Amazon on board as they bring their Amazon Lockers service to our customers. Our click and collect partnerships have been extremely successful and we look forward to bringing more of the services our customers want to our network.”
Customers can choose to have items delivered to an Amazon Locker when placing their order, avoiding the risk of missing the post man or courier.
“Some of our first Lockers in the world were launched in London and they have become the preferred delivery option for many in the capital,” said Christopher North, Managing Director of Amazon.co.uk Ltd.
“We are delighted to have teamed up with TfL to bring the convenience of Amazon Lockers to an even greater number of London commuters.”
