Disruption of Service
If the PRT is temporarily out of service, a notification will be sent via @WVUDOT on Twitter and Facebook and will include an estimated time of return service. Direct bus service will be provided for the portion of the system that is temporarily out of service. If there is a long-term outage, announcements will be communicated through MIX email accounts, E-News, WVU Information Stations and other media across campus.

The PRT command center team constantly monitors the PRT platforms
and movement of the cars. They know instantly when a car goes out of service.
For safety reasons, please do not exit the cars and go out on the guideway.
This will only prolong the delay for the system to come back online.
Please remain calm and wait for instructions if you have to exit the car. If the
PRT is going to be out of service for any length of time, information about
the closure will be quickly distributed through various forms of media.
What if I get stuck on the PRT?
Students should use the phone systems on the platforms if there is an issue. You can also call 304-293-5502.
