DALLAS, July 18, 2022 – PNC Bank has expanded its presence in North Texas with the local debut of a mobile banking unit. The 30-foot branch on wheels is intended to make banking easier and more accessible to customers in areas where a traditional brick-and-mortar branch may otherwise not be available.
The mobile branch will be available to customers and prospective customers at several nonprofit organizations, bringing financial education and products and services to people in underbanked neighborhoods throughout the region. North Texas is the fourth PNC market to introduce the custom- designed mobile branch after successful launches in Chicago (2020), Detroit (2021) and Baltimore (2022).
“Data shows us that consumers increasingly are opting to conduct basic transactions through online and digital channels, but as a National Main Street bank, we understand that many still prefer the in-person experience,” said Brendan McGuire, PNC regional president for North Texas. “The PNC mobile branch reflects PNC’s commitment to using innovation to address the financial needs of the regions we serve. Our goal is to work closely with organizations that have strong roots in our communities to provide secure, alternative banking and financial wellness options for individuals, families and businesses in underbanked areas.”
The mobile branch allows current and prospective PNC customers to meet with a personal banker; open a checking account; apply for a personal loan, credit card or mortgage; receive or replace a PNC debit card and more. The unit includes an office for private conversations and a deposit-taking ATM.
Mobile branch bankers also will introduce clients and prospects to PNC’s groundbreaking new Low Cash Mode℠ digital offering, which addresses the $17 billion dollars that some studies estimate U.S. consumers pay each year in overdraft fees. Low Cash Mode offers Real-Time Intelligent Alerts, “Extra Time” and Payment Control – the power to determine whether certain debits are processed that otherwise might result in overdrafts. Together, these features give customers the power to prevent or address overdrafts before fees are charged.

Nonprofit organizations hosting the mobile branch include the following, with date and time availability to be provided by the nonprofit:
 United MegaCare/TD Jakes Ministries
 Foundation Communities
 Texas Wesleyan University
 LVTRise
 Jubilee Park & Community Center
 CitySquare
 Hunger Busters
Access to the interior of the mobile branch will be limited to one individual or family at a time. On-site assistance will be available in English and Spanish. In compliance with COVID-19 safety standards, PNC team members will be furnished with gloves, face masks and cleaning supplies. Employees will wipe down surfaces after each customer interaction and follow social distancing best practices to protect customers and
team members. Those customers who may be hesitant to enter the unit can receive remote assistance from bankers.
The deployment of the mobile branch is part of PNC’s $88 billion Community Benefits Plan, which expands economic opportunity support for minorities and low- and moderate-income individuals and communities. Announced in April 2021, the plan features strategies to better meet the needs of the unbanked and underbanked, including the deployment of 10 mobile branches, primarily dedicated to
servicing low- and moderate-income communities. In addition, PNC will partner with each of the nonprofit partners to expand access to financial education.
PNC Bank, National Association, is a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: PNC). PNC is one of the largest diversified financial services institutions in the United States, organized around its customers and communities for strong relationships and local delivery of retail and business banking; residential mortgage banking; specialized services for corporations and government entities, including corporate banking, real estate finance and asset-based lending; wealth management and asset management.
