Annoyed by electric scooters buzzing around the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail?
The Trail Foundation has teamed with Austin’s Beef and Pie Productions to create a social media campaign reminding people that electric scooters are banned on the trail, a 10-mile loop around Lady Bird Lake.
The Foundation is also selling limited edition “No scooters on the Trail” T-shirts for $20 via its website, www.thetrailfoundation.org.
“We’re asking our friends to become walking billboards with the message that electric scooters are not allowed on the Butler Trail,” Heidi Anderson, executive director of The Trail Foundation, said in a press release.
People who see e-scooters on the trail are asked to report them to the City of Austin by dialing 311.
