Bicycle Registration

All bicycles operated in the Borough of State College and on the University Park campus must be registered and display a current Centre Region permit. (The permit issued on campus is identical to the one issued by the Borough of State College).
Permits are available from the State College Borough and Ferguson Township Police Departments, Penn State University, and participating bicycle shops. In order to be registered and issued a permit, a bicycle must be in a safe mechanical operating condition and be equipped with the following:
  • a red reflector on the rear, 
  • an amber reflector on each side, and 
  • if operated at night, a headlamp to illuminate the bicyclist’s path that is visible for a distance of 500 feet. 
Penn State's Office of Transportation Services allows Centre Region residents to register their bikes for free using the University's online Parking Portal. Click here to create an account to register your bicycle.
All Centre Region residents are encouraged to register their bikes so that lost and stolen bikes can be returned to their rightful owners.
