Blue Duck Scooters has closed on more than $18 million in capital to purchase 35,000 to 40,000 dockless, electric scooters and expand its scooter-share program throughout the Southern U.S.
Razor USA is set to deploy several hundred dockless, electric scooters in the heart of San Antonio – once the rainy weather clears up, officials with the company said.
Participants are encouraged to explore the area on foot, bike, skateboard, unicycle, or any other non-motorized transportation option available.
Blue Duck Scooters was slated to release its electric scooters near The University of Texas at San Antonio main campus on Tuesday.
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.
