What Is a Routing Number?

The American Bankers Association created routing numbers back in 1910 as a way to identify the end point for where a check was being processed, which explains why they are also known as ABA numbers and transit numbers. Routing numbers identify the financial institutions handling cash flows between one destination and another. They were mostly used for wire transfers and ordering checks before the advent of internet banking, but nowadays you’ll provide a routing number when you’re trying to set up online payments.
