Project 529 Garage

What is it? The short answer is it's a bike registry system. But unlike other bike registries, you buy a "shield" to attach to your bike, which helps deter bike theft (thieves will recognize that it's registered and hopefully leave it alone) and make it easy to get the community's help with getting it back to you if it does take a wander with someone else. 

Also, because there is a fee for the shield as well as for upgraded accounts for law enforcement, municipalities and post-secondary institutions, there's some actual revenue generated, unlike the free registries which couldn't maintain their databases with no income. 

Every course participant will receive 1 (one) shield for free; additional shields for your other bikes, your friends' or family's bikes can be added-on or purchased separately. Registration is free, but you need to have a shield in order to enter the community.

More information on the 529 Garage, and access to the registry as well as app can be found here.

 

Safer Cycling Calgary is proud to be Calgary's first partner with the 529 Garage.
