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.

The new DOTS Bicycle Recycle program provides affordable refurbished bikes to UMD students while reducing environmental waste. Bikes donated to DOTS will be rebuilt by RecWell Bike Shop mechanics and sold for an affordable price to students at the annual DOTS Transportation Fair on Tuesday, September 24, 2019.

We provide secure bike parking and shower facilities as an incentive for commuters who choose to travel to campus via bicycle. The Bike Commuter Incentive program is intended to facilitate controlled access to these facilities for participants enrolled in our sustainable transportation program, Smart Commute.
