Transportation Services will launch the annual Texas State University bicycle round-up May 20.

The bicycle round-up is an annual collection of abandoned bicycles on campus.  A bicycle will be considered abandoned if it is parked for more than a week in the same place on campus without moving, after it has been issued an abandonment notice.

Transportation Services understands that with the move to remote instruction mid-semester, many students may have left campus without making bike accommodations. Students wishing to reclaim bicycles from storage should be prepared to provide at least one of these items: 

  • Proof of ownership
  • Knowledge of the lock combination
  • Possession of the key 
  • R.ID.E Registration

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. 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.
