Bike Registration

As a service to the University community, Yale Transportation Options registers bicycles owned by students, faculty, and staff members through the National Bike Registry. Bicycle registrations are valid for 10 years.

As a first step, locate your bike’s serial number. You can’t complete this form without it. You will receive an email when your bike has been registered.

Register your bicycle! There is no charge for bicycle registration. In addition to your bike information being on the National Bike Registry website, the National Bike Registry provides a decal advertising that your bike is registered, which is a deterrent to thieves. For more information on bike registry contact,

Missing or stolen bicycles can be tracked by our officers through the bike registry database.
