Morgantown's terrain and traffic patterns make getting to work, running errands, and
shopping frustrating.  If you have vision impairments, mobility constraints, or other circumstances that limit your ability to travel independently.  The freedom of being able to travel on your own es very important part of feeling productive and not a burden.  

With this in mind, Senior Monongalians and Mountain Line Transit entered into an agreement in 2009 to provide a FREE bus pass to the residents of Monongalia County aged 60+.  

Bus pass holders ride on any route within Monongalia County, as often as they would like.  This will be useful for shopping, doctor's appointments, paying bills, meeting friends, and visiting Senior Monongalians.
