New LYNX by CATS Transport Service Brings Baker Residents to Lane

The City of Baker and the Capital Area Transit System (CATS) recently announced the launch of LYNX by CATS, a new, on-demand, shared public transportation service for the citizens of Baker.

LYNX by CATS will provide rides to and from key locations around Baker for $1.75 or less. It offers on-demand rides to a variety of locations within the City of Baker and to important destinations near Baker, such as Lane Regional Medical Center.

To book a ride, Baker riders can use the LYNX by CATS mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) or call 225-267-9080. Once a ride is entered with pickup and drop-off locations, the system will provide ride options. Once a destination is selected, riders are directed to a nearby “virtual bus stop” within a short walking distance, and a driver is dispatched to meet them at that location.

LYNX by CATS operates Monday-Friday from 5:00 AM to 9:00 PM, and Saturdays from 6:00 AM to 8:30 PM. A single ride costs $1.75, and you can add additional passengers for just $0.35. Seniors (65+) ride for $0.35 per trip. All LYNX by CATS vehicles are wheelchair friendly.
