Transportation Services will launch the annual Texas State University bicycle round-up August 12.

The bicycle round-up is an annual collection of abandoned bicycles on campus.  While previously managed by the University Police Department, this year the round-up transitions to Transportation Services.

During the bicycle round-up, all abandoned bicycles on campus that are attached to railings, signage or landscaping, or left in bicycle racks will be removed. As a change from previous years, registered bikes that have been abandoned will be collected. If a lock is present, it will be cut. Bicycles will be held for 90 days after which they will be recycled. Proof of ownership or R.ID.E Registration will be required to retrieve a bicycle after it is impounded.  

Bicycles may be registered free of charge online at To obtain additional information, email or contact Alex Vogt at 245-5555.
