Fifth Third’s eBus benefits the financial future of local residents

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – Fifth Third’s eBus Financial Empowerment Mobile is rolling into West Michigan this summer in hopes to help meet challenges faced by our communities that have been traditionally underserved by banks. The eBus is a city bus that has been modified and staffed with professionals who are ready to offer free help. The goal of the eBus is to meet residents of the area where they reside with financial services. They hope this will benefit the financial future of those that they are able to reach.

Nearly 400,000 people have gotten on board with Fifth Third’s Financial Empowerment Mobile. Aboard the eBus there is help with requesting credit reports, financial education modules, fraud awareness and prevention information, workforce development, home ownership seminars, and how to avoid foreclosure. The bus is up and running with its own internet connectivity and onboard computer workstations, making it just like a mobile classroom. You don’t want to miss this:
