City of Birmingham leaders joined officials and employees of the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (BJCTA) for a ribbon-cutting launching Birmingham Xpress, Alabama’s first bus rapid transit (BRT) system. The ceremony, held Sept. 22 at the CrossPlex Transit Center in the Five Points West neighborhood, attracted about 150 people, including representatives of the federal and community partners in the $64 million project.

“We need to get people from Point A to Point B on time,” said Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin. “The city is in the service business, and it’s critical that we get people to jobs, healthcare and school, as well as to retail and entertainment opportunities. Today marks a major step in public transportation for the city of Birmingham.”
