San Marcos has Blue Duck fever and is starting to catch up with the San Antonio flock! San Antonio-based startup, Blue Duck Scooters, released their eco-friendly eScooters in San Marcos and near the Texas State University campus. Blue Duck is the first company to launch eScooters in the San Marcos market, believing this transportation system should be available for all, especially students.
Within just several hours, Blue Duck saw a significant increase in eScooters usage at the Texas State University campus, but the eScooters were quickly and illegally removed by university officials. Blue Duck is disappointed that its eScooters were removed as one of the company’s core missions is to provide alternative modes of transportation for students seeking convenient ways to navigate large university campuses.
Blue Duck Scooters are still available in San Marcos and near the university campus. Blue Duck looks forward to working together with the Texas State University community to revise this situation.
QUOTE FROM BLUE DUCK SCOOTERS FOUNDER & PRESIDENT, ERIC BELL:
“Students looking to arrive to class and extracurricular activities in a quicker manner or simply travel around their favorite places by school are encouraged to take action and petition to allow Blue Duck Scooters to remain at Texas State. Blue Duck Scooters benefit students and commuters by offering a fast, fun and affordable transit option to ditch their car.”
