TransLink has selected PigeonBox - a smart locker service – for a new program, but has left Burnaby off of the list of locations when they begin this spring.
With the new PigeonBox smart lockers, customers can have their deliveries sent to lockers at three SkyTrain stations, but only in Vancouver at Joyce-Collingwood, Stadium-Chinatown, and Commercial-Broadway.
Customers need to sign up to use a locker on the PigeonBox website or PigeonBox App. Customers can then use the provided PigeonBox address as their mailing address when making any online purchase. Once the order is complete and delivered, PigeonBox will send the customer a locker number and access code for a smart locker.
This initiative is a one-year pilot from the TransLink Tomorrow program to test the demand for smart locker services on the transit system. The continuation and expansion of this service will be determined by the results of the pilot.
