Mission and Vision

It's a great day at MAX, today, tomorrow, and everyday!

As the transportation leader in Central Alabama, we strive for excellence at all times. MAX, which stands for Metro Area Express, is the bus system operated by the Birmingham Jefferson County Transit Authority (BJCTA). We average approximately 3 million riders each year. Currently, BJCTA does not receive dedicated funding from the Alabama Department of Transportation. Aside from federal funds, we are able to operate using our partnerships with local businesses and municipalities. From new technology on our buses to a state-of-the-art Intermodal facility, we are changing the dynamics within our industry. Our mission is to refine, refocus and rebuild public transportation. We want to develop and maintain an effective, efficient, and safe system that is responsive to the mobility needs of the community. MAX transit can be trusted to maintain and encourage the use of public transportation which shall in return contribute to the economic vitality of the community, the conservation of natural resources and the protection of the environment.
