At a public meeting on Monday, December 16, MAX Transit announced its recent changes to the following routes to increase service performance and route times:

•    1 – South Bessemer
•    1 – Express
•    3 – Jefferson/Wenonah
•    28 – South Eastlake
•    17 – Eastwood Mall
•    25 – Centerpoint
•    26 – Jefferson State
•    45 – Bessemer
•    45 – Express
•    280 – Limited Stop
Some of the major changes taking effect include:

•    41- Fairfield  – will no longer operate the Fairfield school service
•    14 Idlewild / Palisades – will now operate four (4) new Express trips a day
•    20 Zion City  – will now provide service directly to the Airport terminal and to the Penfield community

Dr. Henry Ikwut-Ukwa, Manager of Planning and Development stated that, “It is nearly impossible to maintain headways on certain routes with the current trip times and the number of vehicles available. The service headway and service spans were adjusted to certain routes to help improve on-time performance and scheduled adherence.”
The changes are set to take effect on Monday, January 6, 2014. New schedules can be viewed at BJCTA.org or picked up at Central Station, located 1735 Morris Avenue. You can also receive more information by calling MAX customer service at 205.521.0101.
