Welcome to DialaRide.

We are a registered charity and have been providing support to our community since 1987.

Lincoln Area DialaRide is a charitable company that provides community transport and mobility services to the people of Lincoln. It dedicates itself to improving the quality of life and promoting the social inclusion of those individuals who are registered to use its services.

What do we do?

Lincoln area DialaRide provides three main services.

1. DialaRide (DAR)

2. ShopMobility (ShopMo)

3. Voluntary Car Scheme (VCS)

We provide a door-to-door accessible minibus service which can be requested for any reason. We are not just medical transport for doctor/hospital appointments. We can take you to the shops or bingo or to John O’Groats if that’s where you’d like to go. All our drivers are volunteers, so all trips are subject to driver availability.

We also provide mobility equipment of all kinds to enable people to access the city. You can hire this as a registered user of the scheme or as a visitor to the city.

We also run a voluntary car scheme which is volunteer drivers using their own vehicles to help transport those who can travel in a car.

Anyone who struggles to access public transport due to age, disability or health can use our DAR and VCS service, even if that need is only temporary. To use our DAR service, you must live within a 10-mile radius of Lincoln City centre. If you live outside this area, then you can use our VCS. We have drivers dotted around the wider county that will transport you wherever you request
