How to Get to Manhattan During the L Train Shutdown


Other forms of transportation while you await the L train’s reopening include:

  • Taking the J/M/Z and then, if it’s a nice day, biking or walking across the Williamsburg Bridge or taking a ride-sharing service across

  • Taking the NYC ferry

  • Taking the G line into Queens, and then transferring to take the 7 into midtown (the G line is said to be doubling from four cars to eight.)

Alternatively, some companies have thought up other solutions for commuters, such as the aptly named The New L, a carpool subscription that will get you to work in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. There have even been talks of perhaps creating an air gondola, or a temporary pontoon bridge.
