Boston by Segway, a segway tour company, filed for bankruptcy protection after acquiring 200,000 dollars in fines over two years.
Residents in the North End have been complaining about an onslaught of Segway riders invading their neighborhood. Now, the city plans to ban them from sidewalks.
Now you don’t have to go inside Boston’s Museum of Science for an educational experience. The museum on Friday started offering outdoor tours of the parks, open areas and surrounding neighborhoods using Segways, the two-wheeled personal transporters that defy the laws of balance. Museum vice president of education Paul Fontaine says he has long wanted to expand the museum’s offerings to the outdoors.
