Not Many People Know That You Can Take A Ride On A Historically Unique Rapid Transit System In West Virginia

Would you believe it if we told you that the first large-scale automated guideway transit system in the U.S. is right here in West Virginia? It’s true! Designed as a demonstration project by Boeing, the Personal Rapid Transport (PRT) system at West Virginia University in Morgantown made history when it first launched in the early 1970s. And it’s still in use today, nearly half a century later, shuttling WVU students and staff onto and around campus.

Does the WVU PRT help you get where you need to go on a regular basis? If not, have you ever ridden it just for fun? Learn more about this groundbreaking personal rapid transport system on the West Virginia University website or the WVU Transportation Facebook page.
