  • Reverse Peak trains are not included in our Quiet CALMmute program.

Customers Traveling On Quiet Commute Cars should:

  • Not use cell phones.

  • Conduct conversations in a subdued voice.
  • Use headphones at a volume that cannot be heard by fellow passengers.

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