  The DC Metro has announced it will allow riders to bring their Segways on subway trains (b Segway_1 ut not on buses).  Although the Metro Authority had previously outlawed bringing the transporters into the subway system, citizens pressured Metro to drop the ban.

The Segway policy will be similar to Metro's policy on bikes, meaning riders are free to bring Segways on trains, except during rush hour. And no riding them once inside metro stations. The official policy will be effective in August.

This'll be really convenient for those times when you're running late for a game!
