Segways Legal in Ontario As Of Today

Segway of Ontario / Go Tours Pleased to Announce Full Segway Legalization After 12 Year Pilot Program

Are Segways legal in Ontario? Click here to find out.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, Canada – April 1, 2018  – Just kidding.

The Segway PT is still illegal for most riders in Ontario, even after new personal transporters like the Ninebot MiniPro, Segway Kickscooter and multiple other brands of similar products.

Upon launching in 2004, Segway of Ontario / Go Tours Canada quickly became a polarizing topic of debate municipally in Toronto and in the province of Ontario.  After initial consultations and media coverage, the Segway PT was placed under a pilot program in 2006.  Since then there have been no updates to the pilot which ends in October 2018.

“For 12 years since the Segway PT pilot was initiated in Ontario, we’ve been pushing for updated legislation to allow small businesses like ours to operate legally and bring new economy to small tourism destinations across the province.” Says Jason Rizzuti, General Manager of Segway Ontario. “Most people calling up to inquire about purchasing Segway PT’s want to open tour operations like ours or simply desire to get out of their cars on their commute.  Unlike us, few of these businesses are able to operate on private property and simply don’t open.”

Based on internal estimates, the economic benefits brought to these communities through increased tourism would be in the millions.  With the pilot coming to a close this year, the Ministry of Transportation must decide whether to legalize the Segway PT as other provinces have done or keep the current restrictions.

For more information and to submit your own feedback, contact the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s Segway Project Lead Fazelah Ali – Fazelah.Ali@ontario.ca.  We request your urgent feedback on the Ontario Segway Pilot so the government is better able to make an informed decision, if you have taken a tour with us before, please provide feedback.
