The Grain Valley Partnership and City of Grain Valley welcomed OATS Transit to the community in a ribbon cutting at the Grain Valley Community Center on June 18th.
OATS Transit became available to Grain Valley residents on June 1st, 2018. The transportation service offers 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.
