During World War II it was common practice for some communiqués to be dispatched by motorcycle courier rather than regular mail (too slow) or telephone (spies can tune in). Women were commonly recruited as riders due to the fact that the men were overseas fighting, that and the fact they were far better at punctuality.
Having attractive young women delivering mail might not be a bad way to return the USPS to profitability. Just saying.
