Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)

The Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system is a unique and easy-to-use transportation solution for WVU students, faculty, staff, and the Morgantown community. There are five stations: Walnut Street Downtown; Beechurst Avenue for the Downtown campus; Engineering Sciences; the Evansdale Residential Complex; and Health Sciences. Powered by electric motors, the computer-driven cars arrive at your station within five minutes after you swipe your Mountaineer Card or employee ID.

Disruption of Service

If the PRT is temporarily out of service for longer than 15 minutes, a yellow flashing light will activate at the affected PRT stations. An additional indicator light is located at street level across from the Mountainlair on the downtown campus. Direct bus service will be provided for the portion of the system that is out of service.

Notification that service has been interrupted for a brief time is sent out to users via: WVUDOT facebook and twitter accounts. Any long-term usage announcements will be posted here as well as mix accounts, e-news and WVU Information Stations around campus.
