Abstract: In this paper we effect a systematic study of transitive subgroups of $ {M_{24}}$, obtaining 5 transitive maximal subgroups of $ {M_{24}}$ of which one is primitive and four imprimitive. These results, along with the results of the paper, On subgroups of $ {M_{24}}$. I, enable us to enumerate all the maximal subgroups of $ {M_{24}}$. There are, up to conjugacy, nine of them. The complete list includes one more in addition to those listed by J. A. Todd in his recent work on $ {M_{24}}$. The two works were done independently employing completely different methods.
