    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 [​IMG] . 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.

    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. :eek:

    There are many in Manhattan - definitely more without than with.
