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

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. Unexpected technical issues and/or severe weather can make service outages longer and more frequent. 

***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: https://www.facebook.com/WVU-DOT-104121102981415/
