The USPS recently expanded its alternate delivery locations – where customers may choose to receive packages – instead of at home, business or post office box. There is no charge for the service.
The newest gopost has been installed outside adjacent to the Williamsburg Station Post Office in Brooklyn New York.

The gopost was designed to expand service access to customers in locations they already frequent. Now they can have packages delivered directly to a gopost locker of their choice. The gopost parcel locker adjacent to the Williamsburg Station Post Office is the first to be rolled out in Brooklyn. The mail carrier delivers to the gopost. An email or text message notifies registered customers when their packages are delivered to the parcel locker.

“The Postal Service is committed to improving the way we serve our customers,” said Frank Calabrese, District Manager for the Triboro District of the postal service. “We want to give them more convenience, more flexibility and more options. That’s what gopost is all about.”
Other gopost parcel lockers located in New York City include:

  • Manhattanville Station Post Office, 365 West 135 Street , New York NY
  • Grand Central Station Post Office, 450 Lexington Avenue, New York NY

How to get started with the convenience of using gopost – An additional way to receive and send packages:

To use the service, customers simply register at, where they select their own personal ID numbers to use with their goPost access cards. The cards are mailed to customers and then activated after the customer visits a participating Post Office for a one-time ID verification. Packages are delivered to gopost by Postal Service carriers. When a package arrives, the gopost customer is notified via email that the item is available for pickup.
Customers are not assigned specific lockers; rather, packages are placed in lockers that are available and accommodate the size of the package. To learn more about gopost or to sign up for the service, visit
