Palo Alto Bikestation

The Bikestation is located at the Palo Alto Caltrain station and, offers a secure and convenient way for more commuters to combine cycling with transit at one of Caltrain's busiest stops.

The Palo Alto Bikestation closed in November 2004, during renovations to the historic depot building. The City of Palo Alto secured funding from the Caltrans Bicycle Transportation Account to equip the facility with round-the-clock electronic key access and a double-tier bicycle rack that can accommodate 96 bicycles.
