Brazos Reporter recently visited Downtown Bryan on Monday, during lunch time, in hopes of catching some Blue Ducks in flight and their happy riders. Trouble was, not a single blue duck was being used the entire time we were downtown. In fact, most of the scooters appeared to be in the same positions where they had been placed by the scooter company’s charging personnel.
Blue Duck is a San Antonio-based company that won a deal to “be the exclusive operator providing electric scooters for rent in the City of Bryan under contract with the city,” according to an October 17, 2019 press release.
A month prior Bryan and Blue Duck announcing their exclusive deal, Texas Public Radio published this story by Paul Flahive about the San Antinio-based startup: Public Failure, Internal Strife, Lawsuits: Blue Duck’s Short Ride Through San Antonio
