Bicycle Registration Process

Penn faculty, staff and students, as well as 18th District residents, may register their bicycles with the Division of
Public Safety to reduce the probability of theft and to increase the chances of recovery in the event that the bicycle is lost or stolen. The Penn Police will engrave an ID number on the bicycle’s frame and will attach a visible decal to the bicycle. Bicycles may be registered at 4040 Chestnut St., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For the most efficient service, call ahead to (215) 898-4485. This service is free of charge.
