Postal Service to end evening collection at thousands of post offices

Share via

Imagine if the Postal Service announced that it would continue providing 6-day delivery to urban areas but could no longer afford to do the same for rural communities because their relatively low mail volumes don’t justify the costs.

People living in these communities would undoubtedly complain that the plan was unfair, and elected officials who represent states and districts that are largely rural would be certain to object.

Yet the Postal Service has begun implementing a plan that discriminates against rural areas in much the same way, and it’s all happening under the radar.
