Whether you already ride your bike or you are thinking about giving it a try, Long Island's Bicycle Locker Program can make your trip easier and keep your bicycle safe and secure while you're away. The Bicycle Locker Program lets you store your bicycle in a reserved locker that is secure and completely enclosed. Save time! There is no need to search for a parking space that may be a far walk to the station platform. Most bicycle locker locations are conveniently located close to the station platform. You will enjoy the benefits of fresh air and exercise while saving on wear and tear on your car. Bicycle lockers are administered by NYSDOT or local municipalities depending upon location. Bicycle lockers are available at Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) stations shown below. Bicycle Lockers are intended for bicycle storage only.  Scooters, motorized bicycles or vehicles, and other personal items are prohibited.

"The lockers give me a safe place to leave my bicycle at the station on days when I don't want to take my car. They are conveniently located directly next to the station, so it is easy to just lock the bike up and go."
—Philip K., Plainview

"With the lockers, the bike and my helmet are locked away and safe. If it rains, the bike is protected from the elements as well." 
—Rachel F., Huntington
