Caltrain has launched a Bike Access Survey to help gauge public opinion on efforts to support bikes and bike riders at Caltrain stations.
The survey will inform implementation of Caltrain’s Bicycle Parking Management Plan, which was adopted last November and is intended to increase access to bike parking facilities throughout the system. Data from the survey will be used to help determine priorities for bike parking and bike share options at stations.
Currently, Caltrain carries over 6,000 bikes per day, more than any other commuter rail service in the country. With the technologies available for bike parking and bike sharing rapidly expanding in recent years, Caltrain hopes to start offering amenities to better manage the demand for onboard bike capacity.
The survey is open to all Caltrain riders until Sunday, November 11.
About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain has enjoyed more than five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
