About DETROIT SEGWAYS
Detroit Segways is a company bringing smiles to all riders! Started
by Detroiters Maureen Kearns, Detroit Segways came about when
Inside Detroit, a nonprofit that Maureen co-founded in 2007,
wanted to show metro Detroiters how great the city was and we
wanted to do it quickly and in style. With the purchase of 11
Segway® PTs we were off and running. When Maureen left the
nonprofit in 2011, Detroit Segways, dba Segways2U, was born.
Segways2U journeyed to Florida in the winter of 2011 and landed
in Punta Gorda, FL where we established our winter location for
two years. This year we moved north to Venice so we can be near
the dog beach!
The Segway is a fun and powerful machine, allowing you to glide
effortlessly into town from your boat or RV, through town on
a tour, or just around town on a rental. (No rentals in Venice)
The Segway Personal Transporter emits zero pollutants and very
little noise, is battery operated and is self-balancing. It is
designed to operate as a pedestrian device anywhere someone
can safely walk. It goes up to 12.5 mph and must be run on
relatively smooth surfaces. The Segway is a method of transport that's faster than walking and the same or
slower than a bicycle. They cannot be ridden like skateboards, jumping stairs or even curbs or the rider will
end up very hurt.
