The debate regarding Segways on North End streets and the Rose Kennedy Greenway is reviewed in this video of the Emily Rooney show. Councilor Sal LaMattina and a Segway Inc. representative discuss the issue and the ongoing defiance by Boston Gliders, a franchise operation operating out of Mercantile Wharf on Commercial Street.
A concerned reader also sent in a link to a GROUPON promotion by Boston Gliders that advertises a discounted tour through the Greenway. The Greenway Conservancy and city officials have specifically banned Segways, along with all motorized vehicles and bicycles from the Greenway parks. The one-day promotion was bought by 4,330 people for use within one year.
