Bikes and Caltrain
Starting in early 2021, Caltrain will be upgrading bicycle lockers system-wide. Lockers will be available on demand with a BikeLink account, and will no longer be assigned to individual users. The new system will be easier to use and provide increased availability for people with bikes. E-Lockers are already available at eight Caltrain stations and are also available at many BART, VTA, SFMTA, and Capitol Corridor stations throughout the Bay Area.
As part of this effort, the existing keyed lockers at Caltrain stations will be removed and replaced throughout 2021. Existing locker tenants will be notified by mail of removal dates and notices will be posted at stations.
Access to the new Caltrain e-lockers will be available for $0.05 per hour during weekdays and $0.02 per hour during nights and weekends. Customers can access e-lockers via a pre-loaded BikeLink card, a Clipper card with a linked BikeLink account, or by a mobile app that will be released soon.
Bicycles are a major mode of access to the Caltrain system, providing an efficient and sustainable way for riders to arrive at their origin station or final destination. On a typical weekday, more than 7,000 of Caltrain’s approximately 65,000 customers ride their bikes to a station. With bike share’s growing popularity and the ongoing implementation of improved bike parking and access, riders can choose a variety of ways to bike and use Caltrain.
Caltrain offers a number of bike parking options at stations, including bike valet, shared parking garages, electronic lockers, keyed lockers, and racks. Learn what’s currently available, and how Caltrain plans to grow its bike parking program.
Bike share programs--where individuals can use a shared bike on a short-term basis--are thriving across the Caltrain corridor, offering riders an easy first and last mile solution to their commute. See which stations and cities have bike share programs.
Caltrain encourages bike parking at stations and bike share; however, for those who need to bring their bike on the train there are a limited number of onboard bike spaces. Find out how to load and store a bike onboard, obtain a destination tag, and review the rules.
