The West Virginia University Department of Transportation and Parking will again offer the shuttle service called the “Sunday Shopping Shuttle” for the upcoming academic year. The shuttle provides WVU students and their families an opportunity to access Morgantown establishments without the need for a car.
“We are pleased to extend mobility and access to local destinations beyond our campus boundary through this shuttle service,” said Clement Solomon, interim director of Transportation and Parking.
Passengers must have a WVU ID or be accompanied by a person with a WVU ID to be able to use this free service. The established routes will transport WVU passengers to and from various shopping and entertainment destinations in the Morgantown area and will operate from noon to 9:30 p.m. every Sunday while classes are in session (It will not operate during University-observed breaks).
The bus will depart from the Towers Loop at the Evansdale Residential Complex and proceed downtown to the first stop at Honors Hall at 1st Street and Grant Avenue and at the Mountainlair. The shuttle will then continue towards the Morgantown Mall where it will include a stop at Kmart and the mall food court. Next, the shuttle will make stops within University Town Centre at Giant Eagle, Walmart and Target before arriving back at the Evansdale Residential Complex.
The Sunday Shopping Shuttle will begin running during Move-In Weekend on Sunday, Aug. 18. The route is scheduled to run every hour. However, for the safety of riders and drivers, the shuttle may not run during inclement weather.
