Bicycle ParkingWith 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.
Bicycle racks are located at all stations, except for College Park, Capitol, Blossom Hill and San Martin.
- Lock the front wheel and bike frame to the rack.
- 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. It could impede access for others.
Lockers and shared access parking, i.e. sheds, and attended bicycle 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.
Users need to sign up for a key prior to using a locker or sheds. Generally, there is a refundable key deposit. Some agencies also charge a monthly rental fee, with a three- or six-month minimum.
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 lockers managed by Caltrain, the cost is $33 for six months, plus a $25 refundable key deposit. Check with Caltrain for availability before submitting the Bicycle Locker Rental Agreement (PDF, 23.81 KB).Shared Access Bicycle Parking
Attended bike parking facilities, commonly known as "bike stations", allow bikes to be checked in and out with an attendant, similar to valet parking for cars. The San Francisco Bike Parking Facility and the Palo Alto Bikestation are two such facilities serving Caltrain.
