Free Bike Registration 

From the original purchase to routine maintenance, your bicycle represents a significant investment. You maintain it, buy gear for your rides, and depend on your bike to get around. Register your bike for free through BikeIndex to have a record of your ownership, deter theft, and identify your bike if it is lost, stolen, or impounded. 

How to Register

Registration is quick, easy, and free! All you need is your bike's serial number. Once you have the serial number, complete the University of Pittsburgh's Bike Registration form. 

Report a Lost or Stolen Bike 

If your bike is missing or stolen, or if you believe you've found a lost or stolen bike, contact the Pitt Police at (412) 624-4040 or Pitt Police are equipped to handle stolen or missing bike claims and work with BikeIndex and the City of Pittsburgh to recover bikes.
