A new Purolator Quick Stop shipping location has just launched at 90 Spadina Road (just north of the Spadina TTC station) and intends to meet two pressing needs in the community. This full-service package pick-up and drop-off location in the neighbourhood serves local residents as well as commuters who park in the Green P parking lot where it’s located. The Quick Stop will also reduce cargo emissions by removing large Purolator trucks from the road. Two e-cargo bikes operated by Purolator staff will replace the truck. The new location is housed in a converted 40-foot shipping container.
