What we heard from our travel agency is that they closed down due to a number of complaints and bad reviews.. But that was just last week, not as of the 1st of august (your post) because we booked after the 1st.

I know OAT picked up people in our group from Kilimanjaro, which is approximately a 1 hour drive to Arusha. In our case we did it differently. We flew into Nairobi because the airfare was about one half of flying into Kilimanjaro from Los Angeles on Turkish Airlines.
In Nairobi, we booked a shuttle to Arusha which was really cheap, only $25 one way($50 r/t). The drive is about 3.5 hours with a stop at the Kenya / Tanzania border. Probably from Kilimanjaro to Arusha it's really cheap on local shuttle services.
We used East Africa Shuttle and they were very reliable. I am sure they pick up at Kilimanjaro to and know they have an office in Arusha. Google them for schedule and contact information if you are interested. Good luck and enjoy!.
