singman is an unknown quantity at this point

Metro Transit in Minneapolis Minnesota has had a gentleman in the past who was authorized to use his Segway as a handicap device on our transit buses. He was 93 years old and rode his Segway until he was 96 and went into a nursing home. It wasn't until his death, and a nice article in the paper that I realized I had bought his machine.

I imagine it again would be on a case by case basis but it has been done. I have used my Segway on our Hiawatha Light Rail and had no problems, other than waiting for a train with space to get on at rush hour.

I leave it in balance mode, and lean it against the window with a long velcro cinch strap to keep it from moving too much. I have the 12.0 bag on the front and it gives it a little bit of cushioning.

Our Transit Police have 2 Segways, so they are Segway friendly. One officer has nicknamed his "Trigger". I think he's definitely gotten the bug!!
