Caltrain Bike Station provides a safe place to park your bike. We offer free valet parking, supervised by top mechanics that can fix your rig while you go to work.
USING OUR VALET PARKING SERVICE IS A SNAP, SIMPLY FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
1. DROP OFF BICYCLE
Grab a valet ticket. Fill out name and contact number on our half – you take the other half. Solidly attach your helmet or other hangers on securely. Let us know if you’d like a free inspection or know of a repair that’s needed. We’ll fix while you work!
2. PICK UP BICYCLE
Give us your valet ticket. We’ll retrieve your bike.
Smile and say thanks!
Please observe the following rules when using valet parking:
- Due to security reasons, we do not allow long term storage of bikes. Overnight fee is $5 per night starting the second consecutive night the bike is stored, excluding weekends. Bicycles left over one month are considered abandoned and may be donated.
- We are not responsible for any articles attached on the bike and bikes left overnight.
Your bike is your set of wheels, and we’re here to keep you riding. Let us know what your bike needs, and we’ll either perform an inspection on the spot or call you with an estimate. We try to conduct most repairs on the same day, while your bike is parked, but can schedule an appointment for another time if necessary.
We’ve got you covered for your bike commute. We carry a wide selection of lights, locks, helmets, and plenty more to keep your ride safe, convenient and comfortable.
We have a small fleet of rental bikes available. Each comes equipped with the gear you need: helmet, lights, u-lock, a bag, and maps upon request.
Cost: $35 per day, $95 per week. For availability, Inquire in store.
