MAX Central Station and Facility details:
Located on Morris Ave., it’s hard to miss the massive building resting between 17th and 19th street.
With 300 parking spaces, for those traveling, and designated spots for the particular bus systems, riding in the Magic City has finally improved!
FYI, Megabus, Amtrak, and Greyhound terminals will be operational soon.
In perfect Birmingham, AL fashion, there will also be a cafe inside “Central Station”.
Olivia’s Transit Cafe will open at the end of the month, supplying breakfast biscuits, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, soups, and a delicious meat & two vegetable special!
