CIT Bank Locations

CIT is an online bank based in Southern California. There is only one physical location at their headquarters in Pasadena:

75 North Fair Oaks Ave
Pasadena, CA 91103

However, this is only their headquarters' office. It's not a place where you can walk in, open accounts, or do banking business.

CIT Bank also does not have an ATM network. So you will not be able to withdraw money at ATMs.

Is CIT Bank the same as OneWest Bank?
CIT Group acquired OneWest Bank in 2015, which is a regional bank based in Southern California with over 60 branches. However, CIT Bank is online only and separate from OneWest Bank. You cannot perform any CIT banking operations at OneWest locations.
