I have the answer to this whole mess with the L train shutdown. Here is what they should do:

1. Run an 8 car G train from Court Square and switch it at Hoyt-Schermerhorn onto the A train tracks, routing it into Manhattan. The G train would then substitute for C train service in Manhattan. C trains would not run in Manhattan for the duration of the shutdown. For C train service in Brooklyn, see #3.

2. Riders wishing to continue on into Brooklyn south of Hoyt would simply remain on the G and transfer to the F train at Jay Street-MetroTech, which is the next stop after Hoyt, and riders coming up along the F from Coney Island would do the same to catch the Court Square bound G at Jay St-MettroTech.

3. C train service in Brooklyn would terminate at Hoyt-Schermerhorn on the outside museum tracks. The outside platforms would be opened to the public. Riders heading to local stops in Brooklyn would transfer to C trains originating from those platforms.

Now, everybody who needs the L train simply transfers at Metropolitan onto the G train which will take you straight into Manhattan. Once you're in Manhattan, you can transfer from the G to other lines to get to where you're going. I just solved this whole problem in five minutes. Thoughts?
