Shhhh! Quiet Cars on All Weekday Trains

Quiet Car Logo

Effective June 20, 2018, Two Quiet Cars® remain available on every PEAK weekday train thanks to the "Quiet CALMmute" program.

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

All OFF-PEAK weekday Metro-North trains will now have One Quiet Car® to better accommodate customers during this period.

• On all inbound off-peak weekday trains, the last car is the Quiet Car®.
• On all outbound off-peak weekday trains, the first car is the Quiet Car®.

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).
