About the PRT

Originally a demonstration project and the first large­-scale automated guideway transit system in the U.S., WVU's Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is an automated people mover that connects the three areas of the WVU Morgantown Campus and the Morgantown central business district. 

The PRT consists of a fleet of 71 electronically powered, rubber-tired vehicles that travel on 8.7 miles of dedicated guideway between five stations: Medical Center (Health Sciences Center), Towers, Engineering Sciences, Beechurst and Walnut. 

Since opening in 1975, the PRT has provided over 83 million passenger trips without injury and taken countless vehicles off Morgantown's busy streets. The PRT transports about 15,000 riders per day and serves as the University's primary mass transit system for students, employees and visitors.
