Birmingham City Council May Suspend Fares for Bus Rapid Transit System

The Birmingham Times

Riders who utilize both the fixed-route MAX Transit buses and the Birmingham Xpress (BX) Bus Rapid Transit system currently pay separate fares for each. But that could change this week.

Today, [Monday June 12] the Birmingham City Council’s Transportation Committee and the Budget and Finance Committee will consider an item to amend the current agreement between the City and the Birmingham Jefferson County Transit Authority by adding $300,000 to cover the cost of suspending fares for the Birmingham Xpress while the consolidated payment system is being developed.
