Sheree Webb Celebrates 40 Years with OATS Transit
Sheree Webb of Shelbina MO was honored by OATS Transit for 40 years of service with the company this month. OATS Transit is a nonprofit transportation provider that serves much of the state of Missouri. Sheree started with the company in August 1979 and worked her way up to head the company’s Northeast MO Region as Regional Director in 1991. She oversees operations in 16 counties, including Kirk-Tran in Kirksville, The Linc in Troy and the Magic City Express in Moberly.
Sheree has overseen many changes in her 40 years with the company, including moving the Northeast
Region office from Shelbina to a larger facility in Macon in 2013, expanding service to include daily
express routes from rural areas into urban areas, working with city/county governments for local
funding support, and increasing overall service in much of her region. The Northeast region has 98
drivers, 10 office staff, 200 volunteers, and 140 vehicles in its fleet.
When asked about her 40 years at the company, she replied “OATS Transit is a great company to work
for. Everyone pulls together to provide a valuable service to residents throughout Missouri, including
the rural areas. I love being able to make a difference in the lives of others by providing them with the
transportation they need to remain independent and living in their own communities.”
OATS Transit provides more than 1.5 million trips across the state of Missouri; 205,000 of those trips
were in the Northeast Region alone. As the largest rural transportation provider in the entire United
States, the company specializes in service for the rural general public, individuals with disabilities,
seniors and Veterans. Transportation includes trips to work, medical and dialysis appointments, senior
centers, essential shopping, business errands and other contracted service. For more information,
