Thursday’s Headlines: Mr. Met on a Citi Bike Edition

Citi Bike officially comes to Citi Field. Plus other news.

Let’s go, Mets (Mr. and Mrs.)!

We're sending Dave Colon out to Shea Citi Field today for the big announcement — hinted at least week in these pixels — that Citi Bike had finally reached the ballpark that shares its corporate naming rights.

We're told Mr. Met will ride around, even. But we won't be happy until our bike-riding reporter has made it there and back safely — no mean feat for anyone trying to bike to the Mets.

Until then, here were the top stories from a very slow news day in the mainstream press:

  • Tapp? Meet OMNY. OMNY? Meet Tapp. (NYDN, amNY)
  • Take that, Texas: A bus company has sided with Mayor Adams and decided to stop transporting asylum seekers from the Lone Star State to the Empire State. (NY Post, amNY)
  • MTA CEO Janno Lieber urged big firms — the ones who will benefit from congestion pricing — to start cheering louder. (Crain's)
  • Hey, did you see our Polk Award-winning and Goldsmith Prize-finalist reporter Jesse Coburn sharing his tips in the Journalist's Resource?
  • The upstate town of Yorktown may come to its senses on lumping in e-bike with ATVs. (News12, Examiner)
  • And from the national desk: President Biden continues to triple down on electric cars, which may improve the air a bit, but will lock in America to another century of poor land use decisions, road violence and congestion. (NY Times)
