Have you ever wanted to share your fun photos, offbeat stories, and positive postal news and experiences? Rules of the road? Keep it upbeat, be considerate, and keep it clean.
I invisioned this happening well over a year ago. It's someone's answer to the small rural post offices. :(
I work local stamp shows. Having this mobile unit would make it much easier to work the shows. Our visual presence would be immediately known and may bring in more traffic for these shows. I have noticed a slowdown in attendence at stamp shows and they may be another dying thing in our technology age.
this would be a good way to service retirement centers and adult living centers.
I have always thought that Truck Stops were a forgotten source of revenue. These Truckers are far from home and might need to mail a Birthday gift, Anniversary gift, Valentine's Day gift, etc. to a loved one back home. Anything that will produce revenue I am for!!! :0)

These mobile units would be a great ADDITION to the service we already provide, but I would hate to see them replace the small neighborhood post offices that are so important to these communities.
What's the cost to the USPS to train employee's to drive one of these trucks OR will ANY employee w/a driver license be able to drive these trucks to a location, park & offer this service? Will the driver license have to be a CDL? Will the employee that already has a CDL have to be sent to "window services" training? These are just questions.. but the bottom line is... A GOOD IDEA !!
I think that would be a great idea! The Postal Service is a business. They are there to make a profit. That's how all businesses operate. A mobile unit in the rural areas would save the Post Office a lot of revenue. It would also help customers who can't always make it to a Post Office transact business. I'm all for it.
This is a GR8 idea!
The Post Office will never do it because it makes cents.
