What is a transit number on a check?

The transit number is specific to the bank, not to you. So if you and a friend of yours both opened checking accounts at the same bank branch, then the routing number on both of your checks will likely be the same. The different number to the right is your account number, which is the number that is unique to your individual bank account.

How do I add a transit number to a bank account?

Under Account Number, the format is transit (three digits), followed by account number (11 digits). In the image below, the three-digit transit is 760 and the 11-digit account number is 00008874908. If a five-digit transit number is required, simply add a 0 at the front and a 9 on the end of this three-digit number (e.g., 07609).

What is a bank account number?

An account number is a set of digits used to identify a bank account, such as a checking or money market account. Banks assign account numbers to each account you own. For example, if you open a checking and savings account at the same bank, you’d have two different account numbers and one ABA routing number.
