Bike lockers and secure bike parking. Register today and leave your bike in a secure location while you work. There are currently more than 60 locations at Trolley stations, all COASTER and SPRINTER stations, I-15 Rapid transit stations, and some Park & Ride lots as shown on the San Diego
Regional Bike Map.
Most locations offer mechanical lockers, but more stations are featuring electronic bike lockers. Bike lockers can be accessed for a $25 key deposit and are available to commuters on a first-come, first-served basis. With a valid Compass Card you can access the new bike parking facility at the Sabre Springs/Peñasquitos Transit Station that features 20 lockable bike racks, a bike pump, and a repair workstation.
Users are asked to log the locker’s use with a corresponding bike trip in the iCommute TripTracker tool. Sign up for an iCommute account and submit an online registration form to reserve secure bike parking, or be added to a waiting list. For details, see the Regional Bike Parking Program Agreement (also available in Spanish). Bike to Work Day 2015 recap. Bike to Work Day was Friday, May 29.
