Birmingham Alabama Transport

Transport


Walking is enjoyable within certain areas of Birmingham, such as Five Points South, though getting from district to district on foot can be challenging. However, Birmingham boasts Alabama's largest transit system, with Metro Area Express (MAX) providing fixed-route buses and vintage trolleys. Bus service ends at 9pm during the week, and 12:30am on weekends, with the exception of Sundays. Some trolley routes stop earlier, though others continue to run until midnight. There are several taxi companies offering 24-hour service and this is a reliable way of getting around, but far more expensive than using MAX.
