West Virginia University’s Personal Rapid Transit will resume normal operations Monday (Dec. 5).

Hours of operation are from 6:30 a.m. to 10:15 p.m. Monday to Friday. All stations, including Walnut, will be available for service according to WVU Transportation and Parking.

Two PRT cars were involved in a minor collision between the Beechurst and Walnut stations late Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 30). As a result, service between the Beechurst and Walnut PRT stations was suspended while the remainder of the system operated on a normal schedule.

The entire PRT system was shut down Friday evening (Dec. 2) due to unforeseen operational issues.

“Over the last few days, a number of system checks and tests performed confirms that the PRT system is reliable and safe for passenger service,” said Clement Soloman, director of Transportation and Parking.

WVU Transportation and Parking will continue to provide updates on Twitter as they become available at @WVUDOT.
