What Is the Name of the Two-Wheeled Scooters That Can Be Stood On?

The two-wheeled self-balancing electric scooter that can be stood on is called the Segway PT. The computers and motors of the scooter are located within the base of the vehicle, which help keep it upright when it is moving.

To ride Segway PT scooters, riders must shift their weight to the front of the scooters, which commands the devices to go forward. To go in reverse, riders shift their weight backwards. The word Segway comes from the work segue, which means a smooth transition, and PT is the abbreviation for personal transporter. The Segway can travel at speeds from 6 mph to 12.5 mph.
