Bicyclists Who Park at Metro Urged to Register their Bikes

Metro Transit Police recently launched a free online registration service for bike riders who park their bikes at Metro facilities. Providing the make, model, serial number, color and frame size of the bike will assist Police in identifying and recovering a bicycle if it is stolen or lost.

Police urge riders to practice basic security measures, such as locking their bike to an authorized rack (not a sign post or fence), keeping a copy of the bike’s serial number on hand and hiding a business or index card with the owner’s name and phone number inside the bike frame.
