UCR Transportation Services (TAPS) supports an internal bike registry system and recommends that bicyclists license/register their bikes. Registration is provided at no cost to all faculty, staff, and enrolled students. It helps to identify your property in the event your bike is lost, stolen, recovered, or impounded.
You can register your bike online by following the steps below. You can also register in person by taking your bike to Transportation Services weekdays, between the hours of 8am-4pm.
How to register your bike online:
1) Locate your bike’s serial number.
For the bike registration to be effective, the serial number needs to be provided. Serial numbers are usually a combination of letters and numbers stamped on the bicycle’s frame. Most are located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet. If your bike does not have a serial number, bring your bike to TAPS and we can provide you with tools to engrave your student/employee ID number on your frame.
