Mobility Scooters Use and Availability
The Pate Swap Meet allows certain types of mobility scooters to be used at the event.
Small privately-owned electric scooters are allowed so you are welcome to bring your own if you wish (see more details and certain restrictions below.) Also, scooters compliant with the policies of Pate Swap Meet can be rented on-site from a Pate Vendor, Events Scooters, but a reservation is definitely recommended. See Event Scooter Reservations
However, not all privately-owned personal mobility vehicles can be used at the Pate Swap Meet during our hours of public operations. To be used in the Pate Swap Meet between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm each day of the swap-meet, private scooters must meet all of the requirements of being used in a federal building or a shopping mall.
Private golf carts (electric or gas-powered) are NOT allowed at the Pate Swap Meet between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm each day of the swap-meet. There is simply too much foot traffic to safely allow them to operate within the venue. The limited numbers of golf carts that are used on the venue are used by authorized Pate Workers such as Parts Haulers and Pate Staff.
Also, mini-bikes (electric or gas-powered) are not allowed on the Pate Swap Meet venue between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm each day of the swap-meet.
