Has Drive Thru banking arrived in your area?
Ben, does drive-through banking mean something different in Australia than it does in the United States?
Around here, there's not a single bank without it.
Somebody told me that in the U.S they have drive through banking facilities, I have never seen anything like that before and wondered if it was the case across the U.S and if it is in other nations also? As I am aware there is no such thing in Australia!
The latest fad in these parts is putting bank branches (without drive-through facilities, of course) in Wal-Mart stores and supermarkets.
We have had drive-through banking for years. I really don't know how long. Maybe at least 20 years.
I guess we are talking about the same thing.
We have had drive-through banking for at least 20 years here also. Every bank we have has a drive-through, as well as the credit unions.
I have used drive-thru banking since I have had any use for banking, in the late 70's. But before then, our town had drive-BY banking, in which the transaction was handled at a window of the building; one reason I remember was because if there was a kid in the car, we got a balloon with name of the bank on it . Also, banks were more local in a lot of ways, reflecting community or regional names, and the biggest sponsors of the high school teams and band. Our "junior choir" (4th through 6th grade) sang a Christmas contata in the lobby one year. What would that be today? "religious discrimination?" since a bank must serve all the people? the only profiling in cashing a check if one has an account there or the payer does.
Here also, since the early 70's.
We've had drive thru banking for years too. I'm not sure how long. Now you can even get fries/hamburger or a coke when you put in your deposit.
There are many in Manhattan - definitely more without than with.
I have been in places all my life with drive through banking.
