From all the service companies out there, the post office comes to our homes and businesses almost daily, and in order to do this as efficiently as possible, they often ride motorcycles or scooters. Motorcycles are easy to use for the mailman (and mailwomen) as they don't need to get off to deliver the mail.

Postal services have been using motorcycles and scooters from the beginning when the bikes were created, so it's not a new thing. But what is recent, is that many of these PTWPowered Two Wheel - motorcyles, scooters, mopeds used by the post office are becoming electric. You can see more and more electric scooters and electric powered bicycles.

Here are 33 photos of mail deliveries by motorcycle or scooters, past and present, from around the world. That mail delivery by motorcycle is "the norm" can be seen in the next photo, a Lego mailman on a scooter.
