MAX Opens Central Station in Birmingham

The Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (MAX) opened its MAX Central Station, part of a $32 million intermodal facility—which ultimately will also serve intercity bus, Amtrak and the city’s bike-sharing program—June 19 in downtown Birmingham, AL, in advance of formal ribbon-cutting ceremonies June 30.

“This has been a long time coming and we’re so excited to have a facility that is reflective of the service we always strive to provide,” said Executive Director Barbara Murdock.

The facility also houses the agency’s administrative offices, a Birmingham police substation, a food service area and retail space.

The section of the facility where Amtrak and Greyhound Bus will be located is still under construction and expected to open later this fall.
