The Rules For Bike Commuters on SF Bay Area Trains - Courtesy of A Street Bike Named Desire

Last updated 6 years ago

It's easy to come to the conclusion that commuting is a commitment to wasting time on a daily basis (or at least several days a week). Over time it has become obvious that there are better ways to do almost everything and to that point, we'd like you to know how to use a bicycle to commute in good health, in style, and in comfort.

The San Francisco Bay area is served by two major train systems, BART and Caltrain. Both of these popular systems offer accomodations for people who ride folding bikes to their stations, ride folding bikes from their stations and bring folding bikes along for both ends of the trip. 

If you have thought long and hard enough about your health, your valuable time or your affection for $4.00 gallons of gasoline, learn the guidelines for commuting on a folding bike!

BART offers folding bike riders the flexibility to bring their bikes along at all times. Commuter bikes, or folding bikes, collapse to a small size for travelling convenience. The  Brompton folding bike is our favorite folding bike because it features the best design (which makes riding a pleasure and carrying the bike easy too). If you are thinking of getting a folding bike for your commute, come see our selection of folding bikes at A Street Bike Named Desire in Palo Alto - our store will open in early June!

Caltrain offers folding bike riders on the SF Bay area Peninsula the same flexibility. From San Jose to San Francisco, Caltrain allows commuters with folding bikes to ride at any time - the only limitation is based on the capacity of the cars. If you are interested in trading your daily car trip for a healthier choice, come visit A Street Bike Named Desire in the Town & Country Village - we'll be open in early June and you will love our options for commuting in style and comfort.

A Street Bike Named Desire will be the San Francisco Bay area's destination store for people who want their time on two wheels to be time well spent. We'll carry the very best of European city bikes, commuter bikes, electric bikes and cargo bikes. If you appreciate the finer things in life, you will love the experience of finding your next bike at A Street Bike Named Desire.
