County committees are made up of volunteers who support OATS’ operations in their own county. Without these willing individuals there would be no public transportation as it exists today. The Scotland County OATS Committee appreciates the support of OATS during 2007, and the Memphis Democrat for publishing the local bus schedule and other OATS news items.
