New Program in Monongalia County Allows Residents to Van-Pool

Posted: Updated:

Mountain Line Transit Authority and the Morgantown Monongalia Metropolitan Planning Organization have formed a program to allow co-workers to "van-pool" in the Morgantown area.

It costs between $1,200 and $1,500 for a group to participate.

"It's typically a lot less than it costs to drive a car to and from work. On a monthly basis the saving can be up to $200 a month," said Bill Austin, of the Morgantown Monongalia Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The van's driver also gets benefits like limited vehicle use on weekends. Currently one van goes to and from Clarksburg each day.
