HIGH POINT, N.C. -- By the time the High Point market convenes in October, the area will unveil a $4.1 million transportation center designed to quicken the pace at the International Home Furnishings Market.

Called MAX, the Market Authority Xpress system will simplify getting around the market from airport to hotel and/or showrooms. Located onCommerce Streetbetween theInternationalHomeFurnishingsCenterand Showplace, the first phase of the hub system adds three bus lanes, seating for waiting passengers and an information kiosk. The second phase, set for completion by October 2006, will add multi-level transparent panels that curve upward to form a soaring roofline for sheltered walkways and waiting lounges.
