The long-awaited Jump Asian Express is a food truck on the Campus Green parked behind Heritage Hall. It operates Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. serving a variety of Asian-inspired cuisine such as General Tso Chicken, Szechuan Vegetables, egg rolls, steamed rice, and more. The Jump truck accepts meal plans, dining dollars, and BlazerBucks. You can also pay via Tapingo or with cash or credit card.

UAB students chose Jump Asian Express in a taste contest last year to determine which new food truck should come to campus.
