There will be bus service from Charleston to Morgantown beginning next week.  The I-RIDE 79 service will make five stops at cities along the way.

The bus service begins Tuesday.  It will make stops in Clendenin, Flatwoods, Weston, Clarksburg and Fairmont.  The West Virginia Division of Public Transit is offering the service for as little as 3 dollars and up to 15 dollars depending on the length of the trip.

Buses are ADA accessible and equipped with WiFi, power outlets, reclining seats, seat belts, and restrooms.

The state has partnered with Barons Bus Lines of Cleveland, Ohio as part of a nationwide effort to connect rural areas and urban centers.

The service will be funded with federal money appropriated to develop and support intercity bus transportation.  One bus has been in service between Charleston and Huntington since 2009.

In celebration of the new service, I-RIDE 79 will be FREE July 1-7. The inaugural trip will depart the Greyhound Terminal in Charleston Tuesday morning at 10:15.
