Now available in New Zealand 529 Garage is an internationally successful anti bike theft platform. A key part of the program is the 529 Bike Shield that acts as a deterrent to theft.
In 2013, Project 529 set out to create a sustainable program that helps reduce bike theft, promotes cycling, and makes cities and campuses more bike-friendly. The result is the 529 Garage.
Over the last 2 decades, bike theft in North America has grown to epidemic proportions—affecting about 2 million riders each year. Beyond the half-billion dollar cycling black market, many stolen bikes are involved in secondary crimes—serving as a modern “getaway vehicle” for criminals.
The strategy is simple—galvanize riders, shops, police, schools and cities with a common set of tools that allow communities to become better organized than the criminals. Cities that we have joined forces with have seen meaningful, double-digit results in the first two years.
