NEWPORT NEWS-BayPort Credit Union is opening three new branch locations. A new branch opened in Gloucester on March 23. New branches are also scheduled to open on the Southside in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach this spring.

“We are always looking for opportunities to better serve our existing members and spread the BayPort story to our communities,” said Jim Mears, Bayport Credit Union President and CEO. “These branches are a continuation of the people helping people, community-based banking that has been our mission for over 90 years.”

BayPort Credit Union first opened in 1928 to serve employees of Newport News Shipbuilding. Today, membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers, or attends school in Hampton Roads. In addition to its new branches, BayPort Credit Union has offices in Grafton, Newport News, and Williamsburg.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
