Division of Public Transit
West Virginians and visitors to our state depend on Public Transportation everyday - for work, business, recreation, shopping, and access to education or medical services. It enriches communities by providing safe, affordable transportation and is important to the economic vitality of the state. Many elderly or disabled citizens rely on Public Transportation which allows them to stay in their own homes and communities. By using Public Transportation, people can help reduce traffic congestion, help the environment, and save money.
The Division of Public Transit is the state administering agency for all federal and state programs relating to public transportation. Additionally, it is the designated state organization for the receipt of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding.
