Caltrain Studying Bike Parking Facilities

Caltrain Studying Bike Parking Facilities


Passengers can weigh in on important bike parking issues at Caltrain stations by taking an online survey that will help inform the agency’s future planning processes. The online survey will be available to the public on Wednesday, and will be open for feedback until November 23.

In 2014, Caltrain’s Bicycle Access and Parking Plan Implementation Strategy identified a need for Caltrain to establish a plan for managing its bike parking facilities.

As part of the process of developing the Bike Parking Management Plan, this online survey is intended to gauge passengers’ interest in different types of bike parking options at Caltrain stations. The survey is open to all Caltrain passengers, including those who ride bikes to and from the stations, and those who are not cyclists but might consider using a bike in the future.

Findings from the survey will provide insights into interest and demand for different types of bike parking options at Caltrain stations. The survey results, together with other data collected during the planning process, will inform the recommendations and policies for Caltrain’s bike parking system in the Bike Parking Management Plan. 

Supported by a grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Caltrain began the planning process for the Bike Parking Management Plan in mid-2016. Ultimately, the plan will recommend a set of management and administrative reforms and implementation strategies to optimize the performance of Caltrain’s bike parking system.


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 enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. 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 system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
