Anyone can ride the OATS bus. It is not just for seniors but for rural Missourians regardless of age or income, who are in need of transportation. Individuals, organizations, groups or agencies may contract with OATS for transportation. Special agreements may extend for as little as one hour or for one year with an option for renewal. If services are needed beyond what is scheduled in the county, OATS might be able to accommodate you. For schedules or more information call the regional office at 800-654-6287 or see the Web site www.oatstranit.org.
OATS is funded, in part, through contracts with the Missouri Elderly and Handicapped Transportation Assistance Program (MEHTAP), the Northeast Missouri Area Agency on Aging, the Missouri Department of Transportation, rider donations and private contributions. OATS is an equal opportunity employer, non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
