Register your bike

Register your bike online . This is the most reliable method for proving ownership. This is a free service.
  1. Why should you register?

    A serial number is the most reliable method for proving ownership. It helps police to identify a stolen bike and is the most reliable way for charging someone with theft. However, the serial number on a bike is useless unless assigned to an owner.  

    Bike Registration is a method to identify the owner of a bike based on its serial number.

    Registering your bike is also simple, easy, and free.

    Note: The city does not manage any bike registration database. You will be registering with our private partners Project 529 or Bike Index. Project 529 even has a user-friendly app that makes it even easier to register!
