Oh more details. There is no reservation system for either option I mentioned. My nearest train station has roughly 80-90 lockers. Other stations have more or less. My station is one of the most popular for biking. There are also about 300 spots for bikes on regular racks. The bike station, with the valet has space for about 300 bikes and fills up by 930a or so. On the weekend I never have an issue with bike locker availability. I am willing to walk 3 or so blocks for additional security. It depends on the location.

I don't like the reservation system for people renting the locker for months. Ours was a mess and wasn't well organized.

Here is a link to the lockers we use and the bike station program.
