There are two WVU campuses that are separated by about two or three miles. Evansdale campus is closer to the medical buildings and engineering classes, while the Downtown Campus is home to pretty much every other major. The PRT is a great way for students to travel from campus to campus because it is free and usually a 10-minute ride from one campus to the other. WVU also has its own busing service that runs from the medical buildings to Evansdale and the to Downtown campus all day long. This is free to students, and the buses usually come every 30 minutes. For students wishing to get to the mall or movies, they can take the Mountainline. This is another shuttle service free to students who show their ID. It travels to the mall, to areas downtown, and to Evansdale. This schedule is more staggered, so student’s must plan their activities around it.
For weekends and parties, there is the infamous WVU Drunk Bus. This is basically the same bus service that runs from Downtown to Evansdale, but it runs for hours extended until about 3 a.m. It is used mostly by students who have been out partying. For those who live on the Downtown Campus, transportation really isn’t needed because everything is within walking distance except for a grocery store or a mall. To substitute for that, there are several convenience stores and shops in town for students to get the necessities.
