TAPS Home | Transportation | Bikes | Bike Licensing
There are five good reasons to license your bike:
1. It's the law. All bikes operated on the UC Santa Cruz campus and in the city of Santa Cruz must be registered with a current California bicycle license. Unlicensed bikes on campus are subject to citation.
2. It helps prevent theft, and aids in recovering stolen bikes. Send
a warning to would–be thieves: This bike is registered with law enforcement
agencies. Licensing enters your bike into a statewide
system of identification, recovery and notification – and also significantly encreases
the likelihood of your stolen bike being found and returned.
5. And in the worst case...bike licenses provide a means of identifying accident victims. Please note: To obtain information about a bicycle that was previously licensed at UCSC contact the Campus Police at 831/459-2231.
