South Pasadena, CA - November 29, 2006 - Electric scooter retailer, UrbanScooters.com, announced today the launch of the UrbanScooters.com Marketplace, America's largest showcase of alternative transportation and recreational vehicles. The Marketplace is a resource that offers easy access and review of non-automobile related transportation alternatives.


"Rumors of the electric car's demise have been greatly exaggerated.," says Frank Minero, CEO of UrbanScooters.com, "Electric cars and other cleaner modes of transportation are out there. There are also a lot of people who understand global warming is real and want to reduce their dependence on fossil fuel. The Marketplace simply brings the two together."

The UrbanScooters.com Marketplace is America's largest showcase of alternative transportation and recreational vehicles from various merchants across the Internet. It provides a simple to use directory of vehicles and descriptions, then connects interested parties with the selling merchant. The Marketplace offers a variety of alternative transportation and recreational vehicle product listings such as; electric scooters, electric bikes, gas scooters, push scooters, hybrid cars, biodiesel cars, flex fuel cars (ethanol), electric cars, mopeds, motor scooters and more.

"After seeing 'An Inconvenient Truth' and 'Who Killed the Electric Car' back to back earlier this year I made a personal commitment to do my part in the fight against global warming.," says Frank Minero, CEO of UrbanScooters.com, "Bringing people who share this commitment together with those selling more eco-friendly modes of transportation is one way I've decided to make a difference."

The UrbanScooters.com Marketplace was launched in beta last week and is now fully operational. It provides access to thousands of alternative transportation products from across the Internet.
