Officials are now talking about expanding the system to accommodate higher university enrollment and local population growth of 1,000 people a year over the next 25 years.

Plans include extending the line to a rapidly developing WVU Research Center and building a passenger station to serve the Sunnyside neighborhood between the two campuses, an area constricted by narrow streets and overrun by students who rent rows of family homes built generations ago.

In addition, a ''feeder line" is being discussed to connect the university and the lone fringe parking lots. The free spaces are next to the WVU Coliseum and other college athletic facilities across Jerry West Boulevard, a cross-at-your-own risk highway, named for the basketball great, that meanders along the Monongahela River.

"Morgantown and the university are growing by leaps and bounds, and there's every expectation that it will continue," said Robert Hendershot, WVU assistant director of public safety and transportation. "In turn, it's our responsibility to get people where they're going."
With all of this talk about expansion, dare I have hopes of getting to the other side of town in under 45 minutes?
