We've designed a platform to solve a fundamental barrier in safeguarding bicycles: the lack of a universal bike registry. With our consolidated university registration sites, it's easier for police and transportation departments to search and recover campus bicycles.
Your students can register their bikes, verify ownership, and alert the community to missing bikes from anywhere. All they need is any smartphone or laptop. You have access to the data behind it all to understand how best to protect bikes on your campus.
Bike Index users provide serial numbers, proof of ownership and identifying information about their bikes. When a bike is reported lost or stolen, our partners can search Bike Index to identify, locate, and track it from any computer or smartphone. Our extensive archive has helped officers recover bikes involved in criminal situations, from simple theft to chop shops, drug houses - even fencing rings and online black markets.
