If you own an old bicycle and have left it secured to an MIT bike rack for some time, Campus Police asks that you remove it. Bikes that appear abandoned will be red-tagged for removal from July 13-22.
If your bike has been tagged but you want to keep it call Sgt. Cheryl deJong Vossmer or Officer Thomas Hennessy at x3-2996.
When the removal process begins on July 13, a heavy-duty torch will be used to cut the locks, a process that could damage bikes parked nearby. If you need to secure your bike at a rack, please try not to park it next to a tagged bike from July 13-22. Campus Police and Physical Plant will not be responsible for any damage to bikes or locks.
This clean-up project helps keep space free for cyclists to park and lock their bikes, and it also helps Campus Police monitor the bike racks and reduce thefts.
