BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – The long-awaited Max Central Station is finally open for riders.
Monday morning, the $32 million facility opened on Morris Avenue.
The station features three additional bus bays, making a total of 12.
Passengers can keep track of bus schedules on a new high-tech board. There is also free WIFI available for customers to use while waiting in the station.
