Did you know Mobic folding bikes are allowed on Bart Trains at all times?

Yes, Bart trains in the SF Bay Area allows folding bikes at all times.

During commute hours, folding bikes must be folded before entering the paid area at the Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell, and Civic Center San Francisco Stations, and the 12th and 19th Street Oakland Stations. At all other stations, they may be folded on the platform, but must be folded before boarding a train.” Posted on the last paragraph of this page http://www.bart.gov/guide/bikes/bikeRules.aspx

No need to wait for the bike train when commuting with a Mobic on Caltrain

Those of you that know how difficult it is to commute with a regular bike on Caltrain can attest to this. Caltrain only lets bikers bring their bike on the trains marked bike trains. There are limited bike trains due to the design and schedules allowed for these trains to operate at maximum capacity. Thus, many commuters on bikes end up waiting for the next bike train to arrive and often have to wait hours just to get on the train. The other option is to rent the limited bike lockers available at the train stations. You then have to be on a waiting list, pay additional monthly fees which really defeats the purpose of commuting with your bike.

However with a Mobic folding bike, you are not limited to these restrictions. Mobic folding bikes when folded are no wider than 32″. This will allows you to bring your folded bike on any Caltrain. There can’t be a smarter way to commute on Caltrain but with your Mobic folding bike. By the way this unlimited restriction also applies to BART commuters.
