OATS Transit will be available to Grain Valley residents beginning June 1, 2018. The transportation service will offer door to door or curb to curb service for residents 65 years of age or older or ages 18-64 with a disability. It will be available in Grain Valley on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Trips will be limited to the city limits of Grain Valley and Blue Springs. The cost is $1.00 per one way trip. Fare cards may be purchased for $10.00 (10 one-way trips or 5 round trips).
City administration and staff worked with OATS personnel over the last several months to identify the need for this service through surveys and reaching out to community members.
“I am so happy that those in need of transportation will have this available to them at such a minimal cost per trip. City staff worked diligently to make sure this service was brought to Grain Valley,” said Mayor Mike Todd.
To schedule a ride, call 816-380-7433 up to two weeks in advance between the hours of 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.
