    Does anyone here have a Caltrain bike locker?

    Do you use it? What's your use pattern? I realized I have never met anyone who actually has one of these things. Caltrain is promoting the use of lockers, and proposing building more. I am guessing they actually get used to store people's files for cheap ($50/year or something like that).

    Like most, I need my bike on both sides... so... nope.

    I like your blog BTW.

    I am another veteran bike/train user. I am also a transportation planner.

    I don't have a locker at the moment, but I have in the past and will probably rent one again in the future. I can walk to CalTrain from home, so I used the locker to hold a bike that got me from CalTrain to work. Used it 5 days a week for 3 years.

    As I commuted during pretty standard rush hour times, I saw a lot of others using the lockers in the same way, bike from train to work and back in the afternoon. Seemed to be a pretty common way to use the lockers.

    I would do it too, if my walk was shorter on the home side.

    Also, I would need a 2nd commuter bike. Since I use my commuter bike for trips to the store, girlfriend's house, bank, etc...

    I don't have a CalTrain locker, but I do have a BART locker. It's been great. I'd assume CalRrain and BART lockers are pretty much the same. I believe I pay $25 a year with a $30 deposit. I've used it for almost two years. Haven't had one problem.
    I wish BART would allow bikes during commute hours.

    "I believe I pay $25 a year with a $30 deposit."

    This is the problem - for $25 a year I would get one to store my old television I don't want to get rid of.
    Of course, an equally big problem is how cheap it is to park a car at the Caltrain lots....
