Michigans Public Service CU Rolls Out First Mobile Shared Branch
ROMULUS, Mich. – Public Service CU is rolling to a stop with its newest branch this morning, a branch on wheels.
The credit union’s mobile branch will cruise the neighborhoods and major events for the convenience of members. It will also be the nation’s first mobile shared branch, able to serve members of other credit unions affiliated with the Co-Op Services network.
“With this credit union on wheels, we have the ability to bring banking to our members, instead of our members needing to come to us,” said Laura Saches the mobile branch manager, “
“Helping people get easy access to financial services is a trademark of credit unions and this mobile unit represents a giant leap forward in strengthening that objective for credit unions,” said Dean Trudeau, president of the $135 million credit union.
Plans call for the mobile branch to go to festivals, events, schools, as well as PSCU select groups and business members.
PSCU’s “Branch A-Go-Go” will be making its public debut at the Detroit Gold Cup hydroplane races July 8th-10th on the Detroit riverfront. The onboard ATM will be active for anyone to use, and the full service branch will also be open to handle banking transactions for PSCU members and credit union members who are part of the co-op services shared branch network.
