You can perform almost as many of your banking
f transactions by using a bank's drive-up window as
you can by going inside the bank. You may even find '
' the service faster and more convenient
Technological advances have
made drive-up banking a popular
Way for customers to do business
with their banks. Some banks in ,
suburban and rural areas' report :
that as much as two-thirds of a
day's deposit volume may be han '
died through such a facility.
Some banks are now expanding
the drivup banking concept to
include automated teller ma
chines. The customer can drive up
to the machine, carry out a transaction, and never
leave the car. Most automated teller machines allow
customers to get cash, make "deposits, transfer
money, get account balance information and make
payments all in a few easy steps.

had a drawer which extended outward within arm's
reach of the driver sitting in his car, and therefore
could only support one lane of drive-up business.
Today pneumatic tubes, which carry a transaction
from the car to the teller and back again, enable
bank offices to have multiple drive-up lanes.
The drive-up facilities that customers are most
familiar with usually have, the conventional type
drawer and one of two types of pneumatic systems:
the captive carrier and the loose carrier. The latest
version is the captive carrier, which is simply a small
box in which the customer places the transaction.
The customer pushes a button and within seconds
the transaction is in the hands of the teller sitting at
the window yards from the car . , .
The loose carrier system uses a small cylindrical
shaped cartridge. The customer places the transac
tion inside the plastic carrier, places the carrier
inside the drive-up unit, presses a button and off it
goes to the teller. - '
Tellers can serve you faster and more efficiently if
you keep the following tips in mind when using the

glad to send you one. Remember to place it in the
envelope when jon return it; a loose pen can jam

Drive-up window tellers don't issue official checks,
and because most of the pneumatic systems aren't
equipped to handle large commercial deposits, .
banks prefer that commercial customers transact
their business with a teller inside the bank. - " '
If you have questions about a transaction, or one "
that will take an unusual amount of time, a banker J
inside the office will be glad to help. -"'.,)
