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.
The Caltrain San Francisco bike valet is closed and will remain closed during the duration of the “shelter in place” order. Under normal circumstances, free weekday valet bike parking is offered at the San Francisco 4th and King Station between the hours of 6:30 AM and 7:45 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 and watch a video on how to use an e-locker.
Caltrain is in the process of phasing out individually assigned keyed lockers in favor of on-demand electronic bicycle lockers. We are no longer accepting applications for keyed locker rentals.
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.
Bike Parking Management Plan
In November 2017, the Caltrain Board adopted the Bicycle Parking Management Plan, which recommends a set of management and administrative reforms and implementation strategies to optimize the performance of Caltrain’s bike parking system. Learn more
Caltrain recently was awarded some funds for secure bike parking at stations, and in August 2018, Caltrain hired a full-time staff member dedicated to station access planning and the implementation of the Bike Parking Management Plan. Join the community to learn more.
