Interested in riding your bike to or from a Tri-Rail station but you don't need your bike at the other end of your commute?

Try storing your bike in a complimentary bike locker after an initial sign-up. Click here for more information. 

Tri-Rail users who need their bike at both ends of their commute may take bikes aboard the train. Look for the bike sticker on the boarding doors to identify the bicycle car that includes a 14-space rack.
