Bicycle Registration

When you click on the above link it will allow you to create a Parking & Transportation account. Once you have created your account you will be able to register your bicycle under the vehicle/bicycle information page.

 

Why register your bike?

  • When a bicycle is registered with University Parking & Transportation, the registration number is stored in a database, along with the owner's name and contact information so that he or she can be easily notified, if the bicycle is recovered.
  • A registered bike may contribute to a higher rate of conviction for those apprehended with it in their possession.
  • A registered bike makes it easier for law enforcement officials to return it to the rightful owner if it is lost or stolen and increase your chances for recovery of your bicycle if it is stolen.
  • Often, law enforcement agencies have a difficult time determining if a recovered item of value was stolen because owners had not recorded the serial numbers.
  • A bicycle with a registered serial number if found, may aid officers in establishing the bike was stolen, even though it had not yet been reported.


All bicycles on University property must be registered. Please click the "Bicycle Registration" above to complete registration process. When you click on the above link it will allow you to create a Parking & Transportation account. Once you have created your account you will be able to register your bicycle under the vehicle/bicycle information page.
