Personalized Rapid Transit in WV

|

The NYTimes has an article discussing Morgantown, WV's plan to expand it's personalized rapid transit system after 32 years of service. The system is considered one-of-a-kind: it looks like your normal tram, except you can press a button to indicate your desired stop and it will bypass any stops in between. I've been to Morgantown a couple times I must admit that the system looks pretty cool: the tracks loop over your head and are intertwined with the town's old coal industry chutes. I'll be in Morgantown again this summer and hope to get some photos -- and maybe even a ride.
