BLUE DUCK LAUNCHES A FLOCK OF E-SCOOTERS IN DURHAM
Company expands its micromobility operations in North Carolina
Durham, NC— Blue Duck, a San Antonio-based micromobility company providing e-scooters and ebikes
to communities across Texas and the Southeastern U.S., has been awarded a permit to operate
a fleet of shared electric scooters in the City of Durham, North Carolina.
“This is an important launch for us as we expand into the State of North Carolina,” said Jen Holbrook,
Blue Duck’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “We look forward to offering the residents,
students, and visitors of Durham an alternative transportation/last mile transportation option. We have
enjoyed working with the City so far and are excited to fully implement his new partnership.”
Blue Duck is analyzing the local area and monitoring ride patterns to find the best places to deploy the
“flock” of bright blue scooters. The team will rebalance and move scooters in and out of operation for
maintenance and charging.
Initially operating in areas of downtown, Blue Duck’s scooters will be available to rent 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. Riders can download the Blue Duck app from Apple’s App Store or Google Play
and use their mobile phones to locate and unlock scooters. Each Blue Duck scooter is equipped with
GPS technology which allows for Blue Duck’s micromobility technology partner Vulog, to gain
ridership data and geo-fence areas around Durham to prevent scooters from being operated or parked
in prohibited zones.
Michael Shannon, Regional Operations Manager said, “Blue Duck has implemented enhanced
cleaning protocols that comply with CDC guidelines to protect the health and safety of our riders. We
encourage everyone to follow all safety information and wear a helmet.”
