Bicycle Parking

View this Alternatives to Bikes on Caltrain - Bike Parking Options video on Vimeo.

With limited onboard bike space, customers with bikes are encouraged to park them at Caltrain stations, when feasible. This will eliminate potential delays for cyclists who have to wait for trains with available onboard bike capacity.  Bike racks, lockers and shared-access parking facilities are available at most Caltrain stations for customers who bike to and/or from the station. Caltrain and other local agencies are upgrading and adding bike parking at train stations along the corridor.

Lockers & Shared Access Parking 
Lockers, shared access and attended parking facilities, provide a greater level of protection for bikes that are parked at Caltrain stations for extended periods. These are administered by various agencies throughout the Caltrain system. Attended bike parking allows bikes to be checked in and out with an attendance, similar to valet parking for cars.  The San Francisco Bike Parking Facility and the Palo Alto Bikestation are two facilities serving Caltrain customers.

Customers need to sign up for a key prior to using a locker or shared access shed.  For more details on locker costs, availability and to sign up for a specific Caltrain station, contact the agency listed below for that particular station. For Caltrain-managed lockers, call 650.508.6350.

For lockers managed by Caltrain, the cost is $33 for six months, plus a $25 refundable key deposit.  Note: The Caltrain locker entry dimensions are 30 inches by 44 inches. Check below for locker availability before submitting the Caltrain Bicycle Locker Rental Agreement application (PDF, 23 KB).

Bicycle racks are located at all stations, except College Park and San Martin.  When using a rack, lock the front wheel and bike frame to the rack.  For Wave racks, park your bike so that it straddles the rack, allowing other bikes to park there.  Do not lock your bike to railings, furniture, trees, poles or other fixed objects because it could impede access for others.  If your bike is stolen, report it to the Transit Police at 1.877.723.7245 (1.877.SAF.RAIL).
