Passengers could have Amazon parcels delivered on train

A train manufacturer would like to see passengers be able to order Amazon packages to their seat.

Bombardier Transportation - which is bidding to build the HS2 line, which would connect London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester - would love to see their passengers be able to order online and have it delivered to their seat on their commute to and from home.

Martin Rennoldson, sales director at Bombardier, said: "You could pre-order your coffee or sandwich. It could be that you pre-order and arrange to collect your Amazon parcels. The train would enable lots of things, so we'd certainly work with the operator to develop the wider passenger experience. The journey that passengers take on high-speed rail could be a very productive period for them, not only work-wise but for their private life, shopping and comfort."

And Rennoldson would also like to include technology that would allow passengers to be able to report faults such as missing or lost property or an issue with the toilets.

He added: "We want to make sure that is all possible."
