Transit Could Be The Regional Cooperation That Birmingham Metro Area Needs

One area of regional cooperation that can link together the metro area should be transportation, said Birmingham City Councilor Darrell O’Quinn.

There is an ongoing conversation to bring greater unity to the transit operations in the region around Birmingham, and he hopes that it brings results, the councilor said.

“For efficiency’s sake, [transit] really ought to be housed in one organization, and I think that there needs to be a conversation amongst Jefferson County municipalities and the [Jefferson] County Commission about having a true regional system that serves the entirety of Jefferson County,” he said.
