Now With More Quiet! Two Quiet Cars on All Weekday Trains

QC Logo

Two Quiet Cars® are now available on every weekday train — peak and off-peak — thanks to the expansion of our popular “Quiet CALMmute” program.

• On all weekday inbound trains, the last two cars are designated Quiet Cars®.
• On all weekday outbound trains, the first two cars are designated Quiet Cars®.

Look for the Quiet Car® signage identifying the cars (see right).

Customers Traveling On Quiet Cars® should:

• Not use cell phones.
• Disable sound features on computers & other electronic devices.
• Conduct conversations in a subdued voice.
• Use headphones at a volume that cannot be heard by fellow passengers.

Customers should not ride in Quiet Cars® if they do not want to follow these rules.

To spread and reinforce the message about Metro-North’s Quiet Cars®, conductors will hand out on an “as needed basis” specially designed “Shhhhhh” cards that explain the rules of etiquette in English and Spanish.

Weekend trains are not included in the Quiet Cars® program.

PLEASE NOTE: All regular announcements will continue to be made in the designated Quiet Cars®. For those of you who wish to travel in our Quiet Car®, we say enjoy the “CALMmute.” For more information, call Metro-North Customer Service at 511 (in CT, 877-690-5114).

Quiet Car is the registered service mark of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) and is being used by permission.
