Birmingham Station to Open This Summer

An intermodal facility in Birmingham, Alabama, is expected to open this summer.

The $32 million Birmingham Intermodal Facility will serve Amtrak, Greyound and the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (MAX).

City officials say the three-block long facility between 17th and 19th streets could open as early as May or as late as June.

MAX buses could begin using its share of the facility between 17th and 18th streets in April. However, buses won’t begin using it until construction is completed on Morris Avenue, which is not expected to be until late summer.

The MAX bus terminal facility will feature at least one food vendor and a newsstand is expected to open in the intermodal facility.

Construction of the facility began in 2014. Birmingham is served by Amtrak’s daily New York-New Orleans Crescent.
