Old National Bank customers will be able to bank on a bus this fall.
The financial institution is rolling out a mobile banking unit that will serve clients while its downtown banking center, at 161 Monroe Ave. NW, is temporarily closed for renovations in late summer and fall.
“We are thankful to be able to utilize this innovative mobile unit, as keeping the client experience front and center is at the heart of everything we do at Old National,” said Michelle Lavery, community banking executive for the Michigan market.
The bus parked on the street will allow clients to conduct all their normal banking affairs from the same downtown location, rather than having to visit one of ONB’s other banking centers.
The ONB mobile unit will be available from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-5 p.m. Aug. 30-Oct. 29. The regular ATM location will still be functional, and clients will need to schedule an appointment to meet with a banker in the mobile unit. Appointments can be made online at oldnational.com.
About the mobile banking unit
In the fall of 2019, Old National unveiled its 38-foot-long mobile banking unit, created to serve clients if an emergency arose in the communities it serves that would make traditional banking temporarily impossible.
In addition to a full-scale ATM machine and wireless capabilities, the mobile branch features external and internal windows where clients can be served. There also is a space where educational classes can be held for six to eight individuals. The vehicle has an onboard generator, so it doesn’t require an electrical power source to operate.
