Worldline Lietuva notes that people use less and less cash, leading to a decreasing demand for ATMs.

"We have created the new ATM network Medus, which is independent from banks, for people to be able to use the future ATM technology today," Zanda Brivule, CEO at Worldline Baltics, said in a statement.

The first ATMs are being installed in Lithuania's major cities of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Panevezys and Siauliai, and the company plans to expand its network across the whole of Lithuania.
