How do I rent a bike locker?

VTA provides 500 bike lockers at light rail and Caltrain stations, Park & Ride lots and transit centers for the use of transit riders. There is no charge for a bike locker rental. However, a $25 refundable security deposit is required.

For a list of VTA bike locker locations, visit the BikeLink website.

At sites where bike parking demand exceeds parking supply, VTA is transitioning from the current one-locker-per-person system to a Smart Card key system whereby a pool of lockers will be available on a first-come first-serve basis to Smart Card owners. Since February 2009, VTA has retrofitted 111 mechanical lockers into eLockers at 12 bike locker locations.

The schedule for the remaining 400 lockers will depend on funding availability.

Existing locker renters can exchange their locker key for a Smart Card. Call (408) 321-7520 or email for information on how to obtain a Smart Card. Smart Cards can be purchased online at
