Looking at station plans for Fresno, it is clear the CHSRA needs a bike planner.
Standard industry practice is to locate the bike parking in a central location, preferably near the station agents. And if CHSRA uses fare gates (which seems increasingly likely) then the bike parking should be inside the paid area.
Where bike parking should NOT be located is in remote locations. Bike thieves love it when transit agencies do that. Especially when running an intercity service where bikes may have to be left for days at a time.
