BikeUMD & E-Scooters

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 through the Bike Index.
  • Once you've registered your bike, look for an email from that provides instructions and a QR code to pick up your registration sticker from the DOTS Smart Lockers at Regents Garage. Affix the sticker to your bike and you're done!
