The L train is shutting down which means transportation for some in North Brooklyn is going to become… tricky.

Some commuters will have to use other train lines, others will probably start taking buses a lot more and relying on other train lines. Or maybe even taking this luxury L train van service as well (if they can afford it). 

And we all know that CITI Bike is an option but do we really want to deal with all that noise and competition when trying to get to work in the morning? Everyone is moody and everyone hates the MTA so why not bike to work in style? Check out these 6 shops to solve all your transportation troubles in 2019:
