All Aboard The Bankmobile!

The mobile banking unit at the Bank of Bird-In-Hand, based in Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania.

The Bank of Bird-In-Hand — based in Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania — had a problem: a lot of its customers were Amish and couldn't make it to the bank in their horse-drawn buggies. So they decided to bring the bank to them.

Today on the show, we take a ride on the bankmobile, and see how the bank-on-wheels model is changing the way people access financial services far beyond Amish country.
