TULSA — Beginning April 20, Tulsa Transit will partner with Meals on Wheels to deliver food to clients during the coronavirus pandemic, according to officials with Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa.

Tulsa Transit's First Transit will take multiple paratransit vehicles and transition them as a Meals on Wheels delivery service.

Deliveries will run Monday through Friday for four-hour shifts, officials say.

“First Transit is excited to partner with Meals on Wheels and assist with the amazing service they provide each day,” said Scott Marr, First Transit General Manager.

Officials say that the Tulsa Transit Call Center will help quarantined seniors by connecting with Meals on Wheels clients by providing support remotely.

“Local organizational partnerships, especially during this time, are crucial for the community. Meals on Wheels provides an essential service and we are happy to help further their mission in any way we can,” said Ted Rieck, Tulsa Transit General Manager.
