Students That Ride The Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) System At WVU:

The PRT is undergoing renovation (expected to be completed this upcoming summer, 2018). During this transition time, we can expect occasional significant service outages. These can range from a few minutes to several hours, and severe weather can make these outages both longer and more frequent.

All HS ACCESS Students should account for travel and wait times if you plan to use the PRT as a primary mode of transportation to and from your on-campus classes. 

***PLEASE NOTE:  High School students cannot use their WVU ID's to ride the PRT's. The WVU ID's are for identification purposes only while you are taking WVU courses.*** 

PRT outages are posted live on the WVU Department of Transportation’s Facebook page:
