magic valley transportation
LINC provides transportation through a voucher-based program in the Magic Valley area. This program serves seniors over the age of 60 and individuals with disabilities. The program provides affordable and accessible on-demand transportation.
How It Works
Participants are mailed a voucher every other month. Vouchers include 12 subsidized rides per month, and each voucher covers two months worth of rides (or 24 rides per voucher.) LINC vouchers pay for $10 of the ride, with the remaining ride cost payable by the participant. Vouchers cover one-way rides. Return trips are considered a new ride.
For example, if a trip from a participants home to the grocery store costs $15, a LINC voucher will cover $10, and the participant will need to pay the balance of $5. When a participant reaches their destination, the transportation provider will "mark" or "punch" the participant's voucher for a single ride under the appropriate month.
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.

Approved Transportation Providers
The following are the approved transportation providers who will accept LINC transportation vouchers:
Snake River Yellow Cab
Be ready to provide your Photo ID and voucher/card to your driver
Your voucher/card supplements your ride and driver will require a co-payment
Treat your voucher/card like cash, replacements are time consuming and may result in loss of remaining rides for the month
Rides can only be used during their assigned month and do not roll over to the next month
If your voucher is lost or stolen, please contact LINC immediately
The number of rides provided each month may vary based on funding for this program
Voucher will not be forwarded so it is very important to update LINC if you move or change phone numbers, to prevent a disruption in your voucher/cards
