Company may soon bring scooters to Mississippi city
VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A new mode of transportation could soon be available in downtown Vicksburg
The Vicksburg Post reports the Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Monday approved discussions with San Antonio, Texas-based Blue Duck Express that could lead to a pilot program using scooters as alternative transportation downtown.
Mayor George Flaggs Jr. says company representatives are expected in Vicksburg within the next few weeks to survey the city for scooter use. He says he rode one of the scooters while in San Antonio for the National League of Cities Convention earlier this month.
Blue Duck, which started operating 18 months ago, specializes in providing scooters to small communities like Vicksburg.
