Grand Central Terminal no longer offers lockers due to increased security measures taken following the Sept. 11th attacks.

However, there are still many different options to consider near the station.

One of the best ways to store your luggage is by using a storage-sharing service.

These companies will typically offer several different locations nearby where you can drop off your bags before heading to Grand Central Terminal.

Alternatively, you can also have your storage picked up and held for you with a mobile storage provider.


Thanks to the rise of services like Uber and Airbnb, the sharing economy is in full swing and several different companies have popped up to provide similar options in the luggage storage market.


One of the most popular examples is a company called Vertoe which works with various retailers, hotels, and other business owners to give their customers a place to store their belongings. 

Plus, you get 5% off when using promo code vertoeshare.

With prices as low as $5.95 for 24 hours of storage, this is a pretty good alternative to traditional on-site lockers.

Not only are the prices similar, but they also offer insurance of up to $5,000 per item you choose to store.

Many of their locations are open 24/7. 


This is another popular luggage storage-sharing company, and they offer competitive prices starting at just $4.75/piece per day at Grand Central Terminal.

With over 380 Bounce storage locations in NYC, you probably won't have to travel very far to find a place where you can drop off your luggage.
