Public transit systems suffering revenue losses as riders migrate to Uber and Lyft may be able to turn to another tech giant for salvation.
Amazon last week received a patent for transforming public buses into mobile delivery stations.
Customers would simply meet the bus at a convenient stop, and pick up their items from a removable delivery module attached to the vehicle.
Not all customers of the e-commerce giant led by CEO Jeff Bezos can take advantage of automated delivery boxes the firm has set up at various locations, including outside grocery stores, according to the patent.
