WVU’s Department of Transportation & Parking offers students and employees a variety of alternative transportation options for school and work. The following travel options promote clean air quality and reduce traffic congestion, reliance on limited natural resources, and utility costs for students and employees.
Public Rapid Transit (PRT) system
WVU is home to the world’s only PRT system. The PRT uses 69 computer operated, 100% electric vehicles to transport an average of 15,000 people per day across the Morgantown campus. The system connects the three Morgantown campuses of WVU and the city's downtown area. The PRT system is free to WVU students and employees, and the general public pays 50 cents per trip.
Mountain Line Transit System
WVU provides free access for all students and employees. All buses within the Mountain Line fleet are equipped with bicycle racks to accommodate cyclists. The Mountain Line offers WVU specific routes, city/county routes, and to Pittsburgh, PA.
WVU’s main campus has over 30 bicycle racks available to the public. Among these locations, the Mountaineer Station provides indoor bicycle storage and shower facilities to bicyclists. Students and employees are encouraged to utilize Adventure WV’s bicycle rental program at the low rate of $8.50 per day.
