I have updated the trip planner (http://bjctatripplanner.org). These changes fix several variants of the #1 and include several trips that were missing. The #1 should now be accurate including the #1 express service. The trip planner is already up to date and so is the android app. Hopstop and other 3rd party apps should update over the next week.
Weld recently did a two part series on the status of the BJCTA Bus System. My trip planner was featured in the second part. You can read it online from the links below:
Part 1 is a very interesting look at the decline of the bus system since the 1950s and the turmoil and political games around transit in Birmingham. Part 2 takes a look at what is being done now to improve the system along with stories from riders who rely on the system.
