I, for one, would find the removal of the ATM at the BofA branch quite inconvenient. I use it at least once a week and often more than twice.
While I do most of my banking online, the need to deposit checks and cash is frequent, and lack of a transaction point such as the ATM would require a trip to Hemet or Banning.
I often find two to three other users there ahead of me. I have found the unit out of cash on two occasions.
My unanswered question is this: Is BofA contemplating removal due to servicing and maintenance costs, or is this being driven by BBVA not wanting a competing bank’s ATM located on the exterior wall of its business location?
If such is the case, perhaps BofA would be willing to locate a stand-alone ATM elsewhere in the downtown area?
