BANKING AND CREDIT NEWS-December 2, 2015-US Census Bureau profiles drive-thru banking


Profile America, a public service of the US Census Bureau has featured a remembrance of the first drive-thru banking obtained from Kane's Famous First Facts, Banking Establishments.

The profile stated today's banking customers take care of financial business at an ATM, online or at their bank's drive-in windows. The first such drive-up facility opened in 1946 at the Exchange National Bank in Chicago, which offered its motoring customers 10 teller windows with sliding drawers. Now, drive-up tellers are available nationwide, and Americans have a choice of over 96,000 commercial banking locations to handle their money. ATMs notwithstanding, over 1.6 million employees work in commercial banks, which have over USD15.5 trillion in assets.
