Transportation: Dial-a-Ride

The Lincoln Hills Foundation is excited to introduce a Transportation Assistance Pilot Program, addressing the needs highlighted in our recent assessment. This initiative is designed to support seniors* and individuals with disabilities, offering them a convenient and affordable way to move around the City of Lincoln.

Program Features:

  • Affordable Rides: Through the Dial-A-Ride shared-ride service, eligible riders can enjoy significantly reduced transportation costs for various purposes, including medical appointments, shopping, meetings, recreational activities, and social visits.
  • Special Offer: A 20 RIDE SENIOR PACKET is available at the discounted price of $10, courtesy of a Lincoln Hills Foundation grant. The standard cost of this package is $21.25.
  • How to Access: For more information or to purchase the 20 RIDE PACKET, please call 916-543-8436.


  • Reservations: Call (916) 745-7560 to schedule your ride.
  • Service Hours:
    • Monday – Friday: 6:30 am – 6:30 pm
    • Saturday: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
  • Booking: Appointments can be made up to 2 weeks in advance on a first-come, first-served basis. While it’s possible to secure a spot a few days before your trip, early scheduling is recommended to ensure availability.
  • Pick-Up Protocol: Riders will be given a specific pick-up time upon making a reservation. The Dial-A-Ride bus is allowed a 15-minute window around this time for arrival. Passengers should be ready and waiting as the bus will only wait for 3 minutes before departure.

Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your mobility and independence within the Lincoln community.

Food Insecurity Among Seniors

Did you know that in 2021, 5.5 million seniors aged 60+ faced hunger. That’s 1 in 14 seniors or 7.1% of all seniors. Hunger takes a severe toll on seniors’ health and nutrition – putting them at risk for chronic health conditions like depression, asthma, and diabetes.

The Lincoln Hills Foundation funds grants to organizations that provide food or meals to seniors facing food insecurity.  The Salt Mine located here in downtown Lincoln provides food and pantry boxes at no cost to seniors.  These boxes may include produce, dairy products, and bread. Items in fresh boxes vary based on availability.  Please check out the Salt Mine if you or someone you know is in need.

The Salt Mine Food Pantry, 590 G Street, Lincoln, 916-645-3778

Multiple Sclerosis Support Group of Lincoln

At the National MS Society annual fundraising walk, the Multiple Sclerosis Support Group of Lincoln, known as the Lincoln Trailmixers, demonstrated exceptional dedication and community spirit.

  • The Lincoln Trailmixers participated in the National MS Society’s annual walk, raising significant funds for the cause.
  • Achieved second place in the fundraising event, showcasing the team’s dedication and community support.
  • The Lincoln Hills Foundation supports the MS Support Group by funding meeting space and online class tuition, enabling continued education and support for members.

CPR Can Save a Life – Especially Yours! 

A recent CPR class attendee shares a compelling testimonial on how the training proved crucial, not just in potentially saving others but remarkably in saving themselves. After attending a CPR class with the intent to assist friends or neighbors in emergencies, they faced an unexpected situation where they had to apply the Heimlich maneuver on themselves due to a choking incident at home. This story highlights the indispensable value of CPR knowledge, especially for those living alone.
