Balloons Over Waikato use Segway PTs for public safety

Balloons Over Waikato is a five day extravaganza of floating colour and light in the skies over Hamilton. Since 2010 Segway New Zealand has sponsored Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) for event management.

This year two Segway Patroller models are being used by Health & Safety staff and by Traffic Management staff. The event begins with a Dawn Patrol launch, continues through a School Hop with balloons visiting schools in the region, and finishes with the Night Glow grande finale – a huge family-orientated public gathering where dozens of balloons rise and descend, choreographed to a soundtrack of popular music and fireworks.

The Segway Patroller is sleek, adaptive and highly functional. It is actively used by a global public safety customer base primarily because of its practical and demonstrable characteristics. The Segway Patroller improves: Maneuverability, Visibility, Approachability, Mobility, Responsiveness and Versatility.
