Motorized Scooting

Electric Tour Co., the company that offers tours of San Francisco and Sausalito via Segway, has met some new opposition in its quest to offer Segway tours in Golden Gate Park. Supervisor Mar thinks the potential impacts on the trails needs to be addressed, but Brian Huber, owner of Electric Tour Co., said that a Segway footprint is smaller than that of a bike. The tour company is on track to step up shop behind the Music Concourse bandshell, but the Golden Gate Preservation Alliance Group and Friends of the Music Concourse are concerned because it'll sit on locally landmarked land. Tours are scheduled to start in February, but Mar hasn't set a date for his hearing yet. [SF Examiner, Curbed SF]
