LIRR Expands Quiet Car Pilot Program

The LIRR’s Quiet Car pilot program includes all peak single-level electric trains that operate to/from Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal during the rush hours.

Remember: the westernmost car on designated trains is the Quiet Car.


Customers Traveling On Quiet Cars Should:


Quiet Cars will be available on the following weekday trains: AM and PM Peak single-level electric trains to/from Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal, Brooklyn.

The Quiet Car program is voluntary in nature. Conductors in designated cars will hand out special “Shh” cards to customers who are non-compliant.

In the event of a service disruption:
If there has been a change in normally scheduled service (such as a canceled/combined train, service suspension or if a train is operating with a reduced number of cars), we will be unable to designate a Quiet Car. As always, we urge all customers to be considerate of their fellow passengers in all cars.
