The development of electric bicycles, powered scooters, Segways and similar new powered means of personal transportation have the potential for altering transportation in national parks and have created new management and technical issues.  National Park Service staff and others who have grappled with the role of new active transportation technologies will discuss both the potential effects of the new modes and how they can improve active transportation in parks and public lands.
