PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – A new scooter rental business is aiming to get summer tourists out of their cars and scooting around downtown, beach and island destinations.
The business stocks about a dozen Honda Ruckus, Yamaha Zuma and Yamaha Vino scooters to cater to a variety of customers. Rates for the service are $25 for two hours, $40 for a half-day, $75 for a full day and $300 for a week. Helmets are included with the rentals.
"Scooters take you farther than your feet, faster than a bike, and to places you'd never see by car," he said.
As a local Realtor, Marchewka is running the business part time with help from family members. He said this summer is a test run to see how well the scooter business does in Portsmouth.
"We'll feel out the market and work to get established," he said.
