The United States Postal Service has taken the first steps to move away from the old gas-guzzling trucks and switch to smaller and highly energy-efficient e-bikes.
The new bikes have a cargo attachment at the back that has a 72 cubic feet capacity to hold up to 400 lbs of mail and parcels.
A report in Electrek recently reviewed some details of this new delivery approach.
While the USPS has previously announced that it was going to shift toward natural gas-powered vehicles, they have since upped its dedication to climate change and announced that 20% of the fleet would be fully electric.
For an organization that has one of the largest fleets of vehicles in the world, this is a significant step in the right direction. But considering that many other organizations, including transport, have made bigger changes, there is still a lot of catching up to happen in government services.
