Facing economic woes, the USPS is considering closing the East Station Post Office at 1914 East 6th Street to save money.

The East Station has long served the culturally and ethnically diverse residents of East Austin’s many historic neighborhoods. The East Station is the only post office east of I-35, providing postal services to Austin’s historically underserved residents and many East Austin businesses.

The East Station not only has the largest service area in Austin, but notably serves a unique customer base that includes many of East Austin’s working poor, elderly, and Spanish-speaking residents who rely daily on the convenient and local services provided by the East Station. Closing this post office will create an undue burden for many residents of the East Side, therefore we oppose its closure.

Given the USPS’ stated commitment to providing universal access to all customers, we the undersigned call on the USPS to keep the East Station open to continue meeting the needs of Austin’s most diverse and developing community.
