PSR responds to third ATM Footprint Report from LINK

Industry News | 15/11/18

The Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) has published its response to the third ‘footprint report’ of the UK’s largest cash machine network, LINK, on access to cash points. LINK’s latest figures show that in September several free-to-use (FTU) ATMs in more remote areas (‘protected’ ATMs—ie those 1km or more away from another FTU machine) were withdrawn from service by the companies providing them. The PSR has previously been concerned about closures of FTU ATMs, particularly ‘protected’ ones, and has reiterated these concerns and is receiving regular updates from LINK’s senior team to ensure it delivers on its commitments to protect the broad spread of FTU ATMs.
