NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Commuters on the Long Island Rail Road can now choose a quieter ride.

As of this morning, the LIRR rolled out its “Quiet Car” pilot program.

Four morning and six evening trains running between Far Rockaway and Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn have a designated quiet car.

Passengers are asked not to talk on cell phones and to turn off the sound on any electronic devices.

Talking isn’t prohibited, but passengers are asked to speak in subdued tones.

NJ TRANSIT and Metro-North already have quiet cars.

Do you support the “quiet car” program? Sound off in our comments section.
