Caltrain currently offers a variety of bike parking options from full service bike valet to e-lockers and bike racks. Learn what’s available at the different stations and what Caltrain is doing to improve bike parking and access.
Free weekday valet bike parking is offered at the San Francisco 4th and King Station between the hours of 6:30 AM and 8:30 PM. For more information on overnight rates and special services such as bike repair, visit Bike Hub.
Shared Parking Garages
Self-park in a controlled-access, secure bike parking garage. Rates vary as service is offered by different vendors or cities. See which stations have shared parking garages available.
On-demand, e-lockers allow multiple people to use lockers as available. Lockers can be activated through a BikeLink Card which can be purchased from www.BikeLink.org or at retail locations. Once the cyclist inputs time on the meter, the door will open and the bike can be stored. Rates vary by location but are typically 3 to 5 cents per hour. See which stations have e-lockers available.
For lockers managed by Caltrain, the cost is $33 for six months, plus a $25 refundable key deposit. The Caltrain locker entry dimensions are 30 inches by 44 inches. View availability and fill out the Caltrain Bicycle Locker Rental Agreement application (PDF, 23 KB)
Bicycle racks are located at all stations, except San Francisco, College Park and San Martin. For tips on how to lock a bike to minimize theft, visit the bike safety and security page. Do not lock your bike to railings, furniture, trees, poles or other fixed objects because it could impede access for others.
