Texas State starts impounding bicycles


The Texas State University Police Department (UPD) began its annual bicycle round-up as part of its Register, IDentify, Educate (RIDE) program on May 20.

Under the program, any bike not registered with the UPD is impounded. Any bicycles attached to any university railings or signage will be removed. If a lock is present, it will be cut without compensation to the owner.

The university says the RIDE program is an effort to help beautify the university community by removing abandoned bicycles from campus. Riders can register their bicycles free of charge either online at the UPD website or in-person in the Nueces Building.

All impounded bicycles will be stored for a minimum of 120 days at the UPD. Proof of ownership is required to retrieve an impounded bike. Bicycles left unclaimed will be processed according to university policy.
