Rural Public Transportation

Where We Go
       OATS provides door-to-door transportation in Carroll County. We will pick you up at your home and take you anywhere you need to, to the doctor, to business appointments or to the Carroll County Senior Center for good food, fun and fellowship.

Fare-Free Service
       There is no fare to ride the OATS bus. However, we do have suggested donations to help offset operating costs. These donations are based upon the distance of your trip and range from 50 cents to 10 dollars.

How to Ride
       The OATS bus is a shared ride, demand response service, which means you’ll be riding with your neighbors. It is a great chance to meet new people but it also means you need to allow extra time for your trip, as the driver may need to make a few stops along the way.
       Just give us a call and we will pick you up at your home and take you to your destination in the town we are scheduled to go to that day. Please call us at least 24 hours before your appointment.
       Transportation is available to anyone regardless of age, income, disability, race, gender, religion or national origin.
