Segway of Oakland harbors a fleet of off-road Segway x2s and street-friendly Segway i2s, which renters mount for city tours, lessons, and offsite events. Both tours and lessons begin with a video overview of segway basics to acquaint the rider and the ridden. Tours then traverse the city, with guides sharing historical tidbits on Oakland’s oak-ruled past on a route that hits Jack London Square, the downtown sector, and the shores of Lake Merritt. Group lessons jet through skill-building exercises in parking lots and on bike paths. After building confidence, students graduate to higher speeds and more varied terrains, such as bridges and grassy fields, and lessons culminate in an independent ride. Segway of Oakland can also enrich team-building events for companies or exceptionally competitive families with segway demonstrations.

They can helm tours of local wineries and the city, or ferry passengers to the airport with in-vehicle flight tracking, which ensures timeliness more effectively than checking the sky a lot.
Green Choice Moto helps wayfarers surf the streets aboard one of their ride-ready fleet of gas-less, electric-powered Xingyue scooters. Solo riders or go-minded twosomes can whisk around town for three hours at near 20 mph, enjoying the thrill of dual-wheels, reveling in the rush of wind, and basking in the envy of people commuting via pogo stick. Thrill seekers can rev up the brushless electric motor of the Xingyue TDR 826z, throw their things in the front basket, and cruise through town, or they can hop on a midsize Xingyue TDP 2492 equipped with cruise control, side mirrors, and a horn for answering the call of over-excited, arm-pumping semi drivers. Though not included in today’s Groupon, helmetless riders can rent noggin protection from Green Choice for an additional fee ($5).
