Even a properly locked bike can be stolen with enough time and effort. The City has partnered with Kingston Police and Cycle Kingston to provide a bicycle registration service through 529 Garage. Registering your bike through 529 Garage increases the likelihood your bike will be found and returned to you by police or others in the community. Bikes bearing the 529 Shield also warn thieves that it is registered, acting as an additional deterrent to theft.

Registering is quick and easy – just download the 529 Garage app from your smartphone or tablet, or head to the 529 Garage website.
