Get around


Morgantown is a relatively small town, so getting around should not be much of a problem. Car is the most popular mean of transportation in Morgantown. However, in 2018, MoGoShuttle, a free public transportation system, began service within city limits, expanding to include bicycle rentals in 2019.

By phone


Most telephone numbers in Morgantown, and in the rest of Butler County, consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but the area is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 364 being the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated.
