Client Feedback



Thank you so very much for the bus pass. It was especially helpful during the pandemic. OATS Bus canceled all of my scheduled trips except for medical necessities. OATS will take me (round trip) to St Joseph, MO, on Tuesdays for $5.00. I managed to schedule my 4 most important doctor appointments on a Tuesday so that I could take advantage of my bus pass.

Kevin K. – June 2020
