OATS Transit receives grant from Cuivre River Electric Community Trust

(Macon, Missouri, January 5, 2024) – OATS Transit, a Missouri based not-for-profit transportation provider, announced today that it has received a grant from Cuivre River Electric Community Trust Operation Round Up program totaling $4,000.  


These funds will be used toward the local match on a new vehicle for Lincoln County Missouri.  OATS Transit provides transportation for work, medical appointments, essential shopping, nutrition and other needs to individuals with disabilities, seniors, and rural residents of any age throughout Lincoln County. OATS Transit has proudly served Missourians since 1971.


“One of the guiding principles of being a member-owned cooperative is concern for community,” said Tim Schmidt, Operation Round Up coordinator. “Each month we put thousands of dollars into our communities thanks to the generosity of our members who ‘round up’ their bills. Thanks to the generosity of our members, we’re glad we can award a grant to an organization like OATS Transit that helps so many in the communities we serve.”


“We are grateful that organizations like the Cuivre River and their Operation Round Up program are dedicated to giving back to the communities,” said Dorothy Yeager, Executive Director of OATS Transit. “Without the support from Cuivre River, these purchases would not be possible,” added Yeager.  


For more information about OATS Transit please visit their website at and find them at Lincoln County residents wanting to schedule a ride for transportation should call the OATS Transit office at 800-654-6287. We also have openings for drivers in several Northeast Missouri areas so we can grow our business.
