The stand-up or stand-up/sit-down scooter is a small scooter which has a deck upon which to stand in the center and may optionally have a seat. Usually powered with either a small gas or electric utility engine, they are ideal for short, one-person transport.

The major advantage of the small foldable scooters is their ability to serve as emergency back-up and highly portable transportation. The engine on many of these scooters is just as powerful as that of a full-sized minimalist scooter and perfectly capable of long distance travel, yet the scooter can easily be stowed in the trunk of a car, aboard a light aircraft, or even in a canoe, as well as carried as luggage on public transport to provide quick ground transportation anywhere. A traveller with a backpack and a foldable scooter has the ultimate in spontaneous travel choices and will not be stranded anywhere.

Note: The legality and usage restrictions of Stand-up scooter vary widely from state to state.
