WVU Promoting its Flawed PRT to Other Universities

The Morgantown PRT (not really a PRT - but that's what they call it) has an explosion and fire and the student newspaper has an editorial calling the WVU PRT a "Flawed Behemoth".... so, what does WVU's Director of Transportation Hugh Kierig do?

He's scheduled "to discuss "future transportation' options for Ann Arbor" at a University of Michigan forum


The forum includes experts on a variety of technologies, including: Mark Fuhrmann of Minneapolis Light Rail; Hugh Kierig of the University of West Virginia at Morgantown's personal rapid transit system; Chris Perkins of Unimodal Personal Rapid Transit; Jim Spalaiskas of Bombardier; Michael York of Cleveland Euclid Corridor; Randy Woolwine of Doppelmayr.

And the wacky Unimodal/Skytran "built with robots" would-be PRT vendor will be there too!
