Rural Transit Offers Affordable Transportation

Residents of Lincoln and Lancaster County in need of transportation to and from rural communities and surrounding rural areas may call Lancaster County Public Rural Transit (LCPRT), a transportation service supported by Aging Partners.

LCPRT is a scheduled, door-to-door route system provided to the general public, including seniors and those with disabilities. Lincoln residents may use the service to travel to and from County destinations, and County residents may use the service to travel around the County and to and from Lincoln. One leg of the trip, either the pick-up point or destination, must include a stop outside the Lincoln City limits. Other restrictions may apply.

Vehicles operate weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and the cost is $2 one way and $4 round trip. The public can use the service for any appointment or trip. For trips during regular hours, a minimum of one business day advance notice is required, but does not guarantee a ride. Trips may be scheduled up to one month in advance.

Weekend or after-hours group trips may be arranged and must be reserved 72 hours in advance. Increased rates will apply.

Funding for LCPRT is provided by the Nebraska Department of Roads to Aging Partners through federal grant funds, with the required local match provided through the Lancaster County Board of Commissioners and rider fares.

For more information or to make a reservation, the public may call the LCPRT office at 402-441-7031 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. More information about Aging Partners is available at aging.lincoln.ne.gov.
