MAX, the Municipal Area Express, is a commuter bus service specifically designed to address the commuting needs of South Bay residents who work in the El Segundo employment center. MAX offers three routes through the South Bay, and operates during the morning and afternoon peak commuting hours. Torrance Transit acts as the lead agency for MAX and can be reached at (310) 618-6266.
MAX buses are equipped with air conditioning, airline style reclining seats, reading lights and overhead parcel racks.
Each participant city contributes money, usually Proposition A or Proposition C Local Return dollars, to fund MAX’s operating and capital costs. These contributions are supplemented by fare revenues and grant monies from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
