Para-Transit Vans & Segways Donated to New Rochelle

This month, the City Council accepted the donation of new equipment that will, in one case, enhance our services for seniors and, in the other, improve the mobility of our Police officers. We received two para-transit vans from the County, one of which will be utilized to augment transportation assistance for local seniors. And we accepted a gift of four segways from the United Hebrew Geriatric Center, the New Rochelle Police Foundation, the BID, the Chamber of Commerce, and Cappelli Enterprises. The segways, essentially motorized scooters with internal gyroscopes for balance, already made quite a splash at our Thanksgiving Parade and are reported by our Police to be very useful tools that both enhance visibility and stir conversation.
