Subject: Temporary closure of T.A.T.S
Contact: Rusty Rives, Assistant City Administrator
Effective 12:00 Noon, Thursday August 26, 2021, the City of Lamar will temporarily be shutting down services offered by Truman Area Transportation. Due to positive COVID exposure, T.A.T.S is currently experiencing a shortage in staffing and the situation raises health concerns for both employees and customers.
Since the Pandemic event began, drivers have not only increased frequency, but also the standards of cleaning and sterilization of the vehicles. All drivers have been wearing mask and working hard to reduce risks of exposure.
Our goal is to provide the highest level of customer service, in the safest environment, and not endanger our staff and riders.
Tentatively, services will resume on Tuesday September 7th, 2021.
