Bicycle Licenses

Registering Your Bike with the City

Although bicycles are not required to be registered with the Carbondale Police Department, we highly encourage you to do so. Should it ever be stolen, this places a complete description of your bicycle on file, along with its serial number. Returning a recovered bike to its owner is greatly facilitated if this information is readily available.

To register your bicycle with the City, complete the online form or bring your bike to the Carbondale Police Department. There, you will provide owner and bicycle information on a bicycle registration form, and your bicycle will be checked to ensure that it is adequately equipped (reflectors, functioning brakes, etc.).
