BikeUMD & E-Scooters

SCOOT SMART IN 2020: NEW E-SCOOTER REGULATIONS

Electric scooter (e-scooter) regulations have been implemented for the safety of pedestrians, e-scooter riders, cyclists, people with disabilities and all others who traverse our campus. For us to fully benefit from this fun and new transportation option, we must operate e-scooters safely and know how to store them properly.

Getting Started as a UMD Cyclist: Bike Registration

Registration through Bike Index is required for all bikes on campus, and is available to anyone with a UID. Your Bike Index registration provides a record of ownership that aids authorities in locating the owner of a stolen bike, and helps with the planning and implementation of bicycle infrastructure improvements at the university. Only registered bicycles are eligible for DOTS’ free lock-cutting service.

  • Read the biking regulations, which include critical information regarding safety and bike parking.
  • Register your bike online at Bike Index (how to navigate Bike Index).
  • Bring your bike and confirmation email to the DOTS office in Regents Drive Garage or the RecWell Bike Shop at 0249 Cole and pick up your registration sticker.
