MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 13, 2005--U.S. Bancorp
U.S. Bank is installing 333 ATMs at Walgreens drugstores in
California and Nevada as a part of its continued growth in those
states. The installation will be complete by June 2005.
"This is great news for our customers in California and Nevada who
will now find it even more convenient to bank with U.S. Bank. Our
partnership with Walgreens and this large scale deployment of ATMs is
key to our growth in the West, particularly in California," said Mary
Blegen, senior vice president of 24-hour banking at U.S. Bank.
The deployment of 312 ATMs in Walgreens locations in California
nearly doubles the number of U.S. Bank ATMs to 684, in addition to its
306 branch offices in the state. The 21 ATMs going to Nevada Walgreens
locations brings the total number of U.S. Bank ATMs in the state to
119. U.S. Bank has 40 branch offices in Nevada.
California counties that will see this ATM expansion include
Alameda, Butte, Contra Costa, Fresno, Humboldt, Imperial, Kern, Los
Angeles, Madera, Marin, Merced, Monterey, Orange, Placer, Riverside,
Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San

Shasta, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Tulare, Ventura,
Yolo and Yuba. The Nevada expansion will include Carson City, Reno,
Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson.
The services customers can expect when they see the U.S. Bank sign
in a Walgreens window include standard cash withdrawals, balance
inquiries and funds transfers. They will also be able to order checks
and copies of canceled checks, change their PINs and print statements.
The ATMs will also feature bilingual screens and voice guidance for
the visually impaired.
The ATMs will operate on a new Windows-based platform and will
feature vibrant, attractive graphics and screen designs and an
audio-assisted user experience via 'text-to-speech' technology. This
platform, known as ProdigyATM(TM), provides the foundation for new
features such as allowing ATM users to customize and save their
