Ordering supplies from Meijer or Kroger is relatively easy. All you need to do is visit their website, sign up using an email or password, choose your preferred store location, then order the items you’ll require, which will then be put in a virtual cart. The next step is to select the pick-up time of at least one day after and proceed with the purchase. Make sure that you fill in your first and last name and address in the contact information section and note that North Oakland Transportation Authority will pick up the order. You will be given an order number which you will have to provide to dispatch. Make sure that you fill in the North Oakland Transportation Authority vehicle in the vehicle description section. After you have completed this process, contact NOTA and provide your first and last name, address, day/time you were given to pick up your order, and request for your supplies to be delivered at your door. You can contact NOTA any day from Monday through Friday between 8 am and 3 pm. Keep in mind that depending on the amount of scheduled rides and the amount of pick-up/deliveries, the availability of NOTA’s emergency service may vary.
Since its establishment in 2001, the North Oakland Transportation Authority has played a crucial role in providing essential transportation services in the communities it serves. Time and again, the North Oakland Transportation Authority has proved its resilience by adapting to different circumstances and maintaining its service level in the community. NOTA’s response after the loss of federal and state grants, and to the COVID-19 pandemic are some of the factors that highlight the commitment of the North Oakland Transportation Authority to its cause. North Oakland Transportation Authority’s services have been indispensable to improving the lives of the vulnerable people in Orion, Oxford, and Addison Townships, and the villages of Leonard, Oxford, and Lake Orion. Without NOTA, the vulnerable people in these communities would suffer the most. NOTA also serves the residents of Oxford, Addison, or Orion Townships who are working and need to pick up children’s food from the brown bag delivery system but cannot do so themselves. North Oakland Transportation Authority aims to meet the needs of our communities as much as possible. If you feel there is an additional need that NOTA can assist with, please feel free to contact NOTA. Please note that the availability of emergency services can be limited by the number of requests for pick-ups and deliveries. The emergency service is only for senior residents (those above 60 years old), disabled and sick residents, and exclusively caters to food and essential supplies. You should not abuse this emergency service as this will have a negative impact on the vulnerable people who genuinely need it.
