CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 13, 2006--When the Transit
Authority of Northern Kentucky wanted to make their bus passes
available to residents and employees throughout the service area, they
turned to U.S. Bank as a natural partner. As a community-minded
banking institution and the 6th largest financial holding company in
the United States, U.S. Bank was quick to agree to become a sales
outlet for TANK bus fare as a continuation of their commitment to
downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Passes and ticket books are now available at all Northern Kentucky
and downtown Cincinnati U.S. Bank branch locations including:
Boone County: Kenton County:
Florence Crescent Springs
Campbell County: Independence
Cold Spring Covington (2 branches)
Ft. Thomas Crestview Hills
Highland Heights (NKU)
Five In-Store Locations (Meijer
Downtown Cincinnati (6 branches) and Remke stores)
"Offering sales outlets throughout the community is important to
us and important to our passengers. Making riding the bus convenient
and easy is one of our goals. U.S. Bank has given us an opportunity to
reach more of Northern Kentucky and give our passengers in nearly
every community we serve a nearby location to purchase their bus
fare," stated David Malone, TANK's General Manager. "And hopefully,
having bus passes in each branch will give U.S. Bank the opportunity
to turn some of our customers into U.S. Bank customers."
"We are thrilled to partner with TANK and happy to provide this
service to their current and future customers," said Dave Smith, U.S.
Bank Government Banking Division.
TANK offers a monthly pass, valid for unlimited rides for one
calendar month, for $45. In addition, passengers can purchase a
10-ride book of tickets for $11.25.
