City Transportation


CATS link

An adequate transportation network and easy access to the entire metropolitan area contribute to Baker's popularity as a great place to live and do business. In 1998 Capitol Transportation Corporation (CTC) began operating service in and through Baker, connecting the City with downtown Baton Rouge as well as Baton Rouge's northern, southern and eastern communities. The City is also served by two major highways and several large arterials.

There are three major state highways that run North and South through the fire district that served by the Baker Fire Department, including Highway 61, Highway 19 and Highway 67. These three highways alone are the major truck routes North and South that have a constant flow of hazardous materials traveling these routes.

Baker maintains an identity as a place of natural beauty, where the business and residential communities coexist in a spirit of harmony and prosperity.
