Magic Valley transportation
LINC makes transportation services available through a voucher-based program in the following counties: Blaine, Camas, Cassia, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Minidoka, and Twin Falls counties. This program serves seniors over the age of 60 and individuals with disabilities. The program provides affordable and accessible on-demand transportation.
In order to qualify for the program, you must complete an application and provide ID verification of age, or signed documentation from a licensed professional regarding your disability diagnosis.
How It Works
Once your application is processed and approved, we will mail you a LINC Transportation Card. This card looks and operates similar to a debit or credit card. Do not lose or throw this card away. If you lose your card, there may be a replacement fee. On the first of each month, we will add funds to your card (usually $100-$200 based on available funding.) If you do not use all of your funds by the end of the month, your remaining balance will not be carried over, but your card will be reloaded to the monthly amount. This card can be used like cash with approved transportation providers (see below.) You can use as much of your available funds as you would like for each trip. It is up to you how to manage your funds each month. Transportation providers can provide you with a card balance, or you can check your balance online at: https://getyourbalance.com/.
