Caltrain is a commuter train that runs between San Francisco and San Jose and between San Jose and Gilroy. Many commuters ride their bikes to the Caltrain station on Fourth and King in San Francisco. They park their bikes -- for free -- at Warm Planet, a nearby bicycle store.

Warm Planet sells bicycles and bicycle parts and accessories. Because the store is dedicated to serving their cycling customers, they have added a free parking service for commuters who ride bikes to catch the train.
