While onboard, zone out to Sirius radio, treat mitts to a warm scented towel, or surf the Internet with complimentary WiFi. Blue Groundways also offers onboard bistro service (with fresh, non-frozen fare), pillows and blankets on hand, a climate-controlled cabin, and Starbucks brews. If you're of the legal age, a complimentary alcoholic beverage will find its way to your hand; if you aren't, then enjoy an equally complimentary soda. You can also lounge back in spacious seating and pass the time with Blockbuster movies.
The Scoot Shop's array of personal people movers set rambles rolling, and its full-service garage keeps each scooter in roadworthy condition. Zip around avenues at up to 60 miles per hour on the Buddy International 150cc, which gobbles up pavement at the behest of its air-cooled 150cc 4-stroke engine. Driving an economic 90 miles per gallon, the International saves money for other types of fuel, freeing up dollars for revivifying iced coffee. An automatic transmission lets riders focus on the road ahead without the distraction of manual shifting, and the front disc brake combines with the rear drum break for precision stopping prowess. The International arrives clothed in one of three stunning color schemes: the Saint-Tropez steals a slice of sky with three shades of blue, the Pamplona’s burgundy and cream harkens back to Old World refinement, and the Italia’s green and cream comes ready to traverse a tree-lined street or camouflage itself in the middle of a key lime pie. Each new scooter comes with a two-year warranty and two years of roadside assistance.
John Ellis Garage's eponymous founder, his son Dave, and their successor Bob Pugh put down the foundation for the garage's 80-year reputation of repairing automobiles with a focus on customer service and honest work. Despite a lineage dating back to the Roaring Twenties, the garage maintains its original, welcoming persona with double doors sliding open just off the street. Now under the helm of seven talented mechanics, the full-service garage fills its spacious bays with repair jobs, including transmission flushes, carburetor service, and antenna-flag ironing. The staff also keeps automobiles street legal with certified smog checks, performed by the garage's two full-time smog technicians.
