Bikes and Caltrain

Through the first four months of 2021, Caltrain has installed electronic, on demand bike lockers at twelve stations. These e-lockers can be accessed using a BikeLink account. Users that link a BikeLink account to their Clipper card will receive a $5 locker credit the first time they use a Caltrain owned e-locker.

In total, more than 300 e-locker spaces are available at 18 Caltrain stations, with more installations coming soon. They are also available at many BART, VTA, SFMTA, and Capitol Corridor stations throughout the Bay Area.

Access to the new Caltrain e-lockers is 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.

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

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.
