A bicycle represents a substantial investment and is a popular item of theft. Registering your bike helps protect the bike and serves as a deterrent to would-be bike thieves. It also helps the police in identifying and returning a found or stolen bike to the owner.
The Tufts University Police have a bicycle security program that utilizes bicycle registration and provides numbered stickers for each participant. These stickers should be applied to the vertical post, just above the pedal sprocket.
Complete the Bicycle Registration Form a numbered tamper resistant Tufts University Police registration sticker will be mailed to the address you submitted. Please affix the sticker to your bicycle as shown in the photo.
Bicycle parking is permitted only in designated areas. Bicycles parked inappropriately, particularly in stairwells or on handicap ramps, will be ticketed and/or removed.
On-campus residents are urged to register their bicycles with the University Police. Bicycles must be removed from residence hall bike racks at the end of each academic year. Unclaimed bicycles and parts will be collected by the Tufts Police and donated to local charities.
