On a very hot Sunday afternoon I stopped by a local store to purchase a battery for my garage door opener remote control. As I exited I noticed a couple that appeared to be in their late 50s. The husband opened his trunk and began taking out a scooter one part at a time (seat, basket, handle bar with a horn attached, controls, and dashboard with a battery meter, and battery) while the wife helped him put the pieces together.

I became very interested and stood in the shade observing the couple put this scooter puzzle together. After assembling, the wife sat down on her seat, pressed a button on her handle bar, and began rolling across the parking lot along with her husband to the store. I immediately walked towards them, introduced myself and began asking questions about their scooter. It turns out that the 3-wheel portable folding travel scooter by No Boundaries was 15+ years old and used to be her mother’s. It was still going strong. Although the No Boundaries scooter is no longer sold, there are many other travel scooter options available for people on the go.
Travel scooters are a great way to get around if you or your travel companion has the ability to lift the components, take the scooter apart and put it back together. Travel scooters mean independence for many people who don't have an accessible vehicle.
