Caltrain Celebrates Bike to Wherever Day

Bike to Wherever Day has returned this Friday, May 20, and Caltrain is happy to help Bay Area cyclists get to where they need to go.

People who use bikes to access Caltrain can take advantage of more than 300 bicycle eLockers at 22 Caltrain stations, including the most recent installation at the Menlo Park Station. Standard eLocker rates are only 5 cents per hour, with night and weekend rates of 2 cents per hour. Caltrain is currently giving 100 free hours of bicycle parking at Caltrain-owned eLockers to riders when they sign up for an eLocker account at and connect it to their Clipper Card.

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition are organizing energizer stations that will provide free giveaways and good cheer to encourage cyclists on Bike to Wherever Day. The stations are located throughout San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.   

Prior to COVID-19, Caltrain served approximately 10,000 bicyclists every weekday, with 10% of riders typically bringing their bike onboard. Survey data has found that many of these riders do so because they do not have a secure place to leave their bike at the station. The eLocker installations will provide customers with an easy to use, secure facility and help alleviate some of the demand for bike space on trains.


About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with commute service to Gilroy. 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.
