1. (noun) Wisconsin ATM network founded in the mid-1970s. TYME is an acronym for "Take Your Money Everywhere" and was rolled out with a mascot named Annie Tyme.

2. Tyme is a brand name of ATM services that has machines throughout the state of Wisconsin. Many locals in Milwaukee learned what a "Tyme Machine" was before knowing what an ATM was. Even worse, many locals don't even use the word ATM at all, making an ATM search often frustrating for visitors. "Oh, you mean a Tyme Machine?" Also, when Milwaukee natives search for ATMs elsewhere, the locals think they're looking for a "time machine." This does not help our reputation!

3. An ATM or Cash Machine in Milwaukee-speak. If strangers are around and they hear you say, "I need to go to the Tyme Machine", you might get some odd looks as they think you're referring to a time travel machine like in the movie Back to the Future.

It is located on the east side of I-75 north of Cincinnati. While it has other nicknames such Touchdown Jesus, I really like the name Butter Jesus. In the right light, it looks just like a giant butter sculpture.
