70's-Era Personal Rapid Transit System Still Operating in West Virginia
Tod Newcombe pays a visit (and takes pictures) of WVU's personal rapid transit system, operating since 1975.
"A major reason for the PRT's success is its ability to move large numbers of students to multiple destinations relatively quickly and avoid the traffic congestion that plagues the narrow streets of Morgantown."
The system was actually built by Boeing as a research project, and "...virtually every aspect of the PRT was original when it was built", which makes it expensive to repair and maintain.
