529 Garage for Schools and Universities
Discover the difference 529 Garage makes on your campus!
How we help School Campuses

No more paper forms, no more spreadsheets

Forget index cards and spreadsheets that make it hard to collect even the smallest amount of data about your students’ bikes, and are impossible to manage. With the 529 Garage, your students enter detailed information including photographs of their bike on their mobile device or on our easy to use website. Once captured, their bike is immediately connected to your university making the bike easily searchable for your campus police and transportation staff.

Notify and report

If a bike goes missing, the bike owner can quickly use the 529 Garage to alert nearby cyclists and their social networks to be on the look-out before the bike leaves the campus. Additionally, the Garage automatically sends complete bike and incident details to the appropriate campus police contact saving time and money on stolen bike reporting.

Peace of mind off campus too

The 529 Garage turns bike registration from a “tax” into an investment in protecting students’ bicycles off campus as well. Our unique crowd-connected alert system immediately notifies nearby 529 members in the vicinity of the crime to be on the look out. This greatly increases the chance of recovery in the case of a theft for the life of the bicycle, no matter where it occurs.

Keep in touch

Our service makes it easy to contact your registered bike owners on campus to send important information about their bikes or upcoming activities you have planned.

The power of the shield

529 Shields not only make it easier to look up a bike to locate it's owner, but also act as deterrent to thieves like a security system sticker in a home window.

Less searching, more finding

Is your impound room filling up with bikes? Help get them back to their rightful owners with our property room bike management system. Just add info for the bikes you've impounded, and we'll automatically search all of the bikes registered with us (and other registries, like Bike Index) for potential matches, so you don't have to. Our service keeps searching every day in the event the bike is registered after it's been impounded.

Publish your impounded bikes with ease

To get the word out to your community about impounded bikes, just click Publish, and we'll post a searchable, shareable Bike Found poster to our site, and let bike owners do the matching for you. Our service filters inquiries to ensure that all required information (such as a police report case # or serial number) is completed, minimizing false alarms that might burden your department.

Make it an event

Use our dedicated app on smartphones or tablets to host registration events for your school. The 529 Garage makes it simple to enlist an army of volunteers to help get bikes registered, fast (even offline!)

Analytics

Track numerous metrics regarding campus use of the program including number and quality of registrations, recoveries, and searches. Use the map feature to pin point possible high theft areas on campus and then allocate resources.

Simple setup

Our cloud-based system means there’s no complicated software to install. Simply indicate mandatory data fields, your alert notification alias and any custom messages, and distribute a 529 Shield to each cyclist. We will track the bike and owner for you, and send reminders to complete the registration process.

World-class support

We pride ourselves on the support that we provide your agency, whether it's help getting a bike back to the owner, helping your agency utilize the service, or just answering bike related questions for you. We're here every day for you to make sure you are successful fighting bike theft in your community.

Global service

Criminals don’t recognise borders so why should your digital bike registrations and recovery system? Our service lets you easily search across geo-boundries, in multiple languages.
