Cutting cycle crime
Bicycle theft has been a significant problem at our stations. Since 1 April 2014, over 250 cycles have been stolen. Very few of these bikes were ever returned to their owners.
To deter theft, we’re now working together with the British Transport Police (BTP) and offering free cycle surgeries. We’ll share advice on securing your bike and stencil your bike frame with a unique serial number, making it easier to reunite you with your bike if it’s ever stolen.
Wayne Harris, our Rail Neighbourhood Officer Manager, says: “The Cycle surgeries we run with BTP are crucial in reducing cycle crime on our network. They act as a deterrent, but also allow us to engage with the public and offer crime prevention advice and solutions.”
How registration works
To help protect your bike from theft, just bring it in to our cycle surgery. We’ll stencil a unique serial number on the frame for free. We’ll then record this number and your details in a nationwide log.
So if your bike is ever stolen and recovered, you’ll be contacted and reunited with your bike.
