The Problems We're Trying to Solve

BusBoxes

How Bus Boxes Work

One of the main problems in the transportation of products is that delivery companies are spending 53% of all shipping costs on getting the package to the final destination, called “final mile delivery”.Routing options, changing road conditions, truck capacity, and numerous other factors make final mile delivery the least efficient part of the delivery process.

Bus Box is an innovative way to deliver Amazon packages to lockers and rural locations using existing school bus infrastructure. Each box has 22 square feet of package capacity and can attach to the undercarriage of existing school buses between the wheels.

We would install two 5’ by 2’ by 2.3’ storage compartments at the bottom of a bus on the sides. Once the bus driver has finished driving the kids to school they would continue on their route to deliver the Amazon packages under their bus. 

Benefits of Bus Boxes

The Bus Boxes would be constructed of recycled material. Bus Boxes reduce carbon emissions, allow fewer cars to be on the road, introduce a better way to tackle final mile delivery, and offer bus drivers a full-time job. 

Numbers

Each 22-foot box can hold 20-25 packages that are loaded back to front in order of delivery. Materials, labor, and installation would cost approximately $425 per 22 square foot storage container. These materials are the price schools would pay at a store but if the boxes were to be mass-produced the price would be lower.
