Blue Duck Scooters was set to launch Friday in San Marcos releasing about 50 dockless, electric scooters near the Texas State University campus.
Disruption signals the arrival of something new, that often lays bare previously ignored issues that are the real problem.
Local e-scooter startup Blue Duck Scooters made its formal launch Wednesday deploying several scooters just outside the Rand Building downtown.
Reports of accidents involving electric scooters have begun to surface locally as the City Council contemplates how to regulate them.
The City held a meeting Tuesday to gather input on how to regulate dockless vehicles after three operators released e-scooters in San Antonio.
Another regulatory quagmire looms as e-scooters descend on San Antonio, but this time feels less adversarial than a 2015 rideshare debate as lawmakers and stakeholders come to the table.
