Cyclists were the first passengers allowed to enter Caltrain's cars designated for bike riders in a new program that began on Monday. 

The Bikes Board First campaign aims to speed up the boarding process.

During a pilot program last year, letting cyclists on before other riders shaved more than a minute from boarding time at train stations. 

Caltrain officials will be at some stations during peak hours to make travelers aware of the policy. 

"Riders without bikes are encouraged to board non-bike cars," Caltrain tweeted.
