Birmingham -Jefferson County Transit Authority Announces

Fare Reinstatement and Service Modifications

BIRMINGHAM, AL (November 16, 2020)­-   As a result of COVID-19, Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (BJCTA) suspended fares on MAX buses since March, 2020. Effective Monday, December 7, 2020, fares will be reinstated.  Customers may purchase passes at Central Station located at 1735 Morris Avenue, Birmingham 35203.

BJCTA is also announcing route modifications and route eliminations to commence on Monday, December 14, 2020.  The details are included below. These changes are driven by the lack of funding from the affected cities to support the service. “We never like to see the reduction of service to our customers as we understand the impact that this has on the ability of many to travel to important destinations” said BJCTA Executive Director/CEO, Frank T. Martin.  “Our hope is to improve and grow our service but that requires the resources of our participating municipalities.”

Effective: Monday, December 14, 2020
