Greetings! why not subdivide a 4- or 6-passenger vehicle into two with moveable plexiglass (so wheelchairs still fit)? Then passengers seated in front could enter/exit separately from those seated in the back. Each group could either be traveling together, agree to share or perhaps pay extra to be alone. Station entry could be only once the vehicle is soon to be available. Social distancing is possible in public transit!
That said, it is difficult to understand why the Morgantown PRT system seems to be shutting down rather than buses over virus concerns. It seems to me the PRT could operate with fewer passengers and, in addition, does not expose drivers/operators. Keeping both systems operating should reduce crowding.
As always, enjoy reading!
