PRT Status API Documentation

The PRT Status API gives developers access to the current recorded status of West Virginia University's Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system. This information is updated by Transportation staff.

API Endpoint

To access the current PRT Status you should point a GET request at:

http://prtstatus.wvu.edu/api/[timestamp]/?format=json

Timestamp

The use of a timestamp in your URL will ensure that you avoid getting cached/old data. It must be a 10-digit integer. The current time based on the number of seconds from Unix epoch is the easiest way to generate a compliant timestamp.

Output Formats

JSON is the only supported output format.

Rate Limiting & IP Blocks

There are currently no rate limits on this API. If the service is degraded by too much use from one or more clients IP blocks and API keys may be implemented to ensure that this information is made available to everyone in the WVU community in a timely manner.
