STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – Metro-North Railroad riders on the New Haven line can expect a quieter commute.

The railroad introduced quiet cars on the line Monday morning banning cellphone calls, sound features on computers and other electronic devices and loud conversations.

1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan reports

The quiet car on the New Haven line is the last car on trains going into Grand Central Terminal in the morning and the first car on the evening trains.

A “Q” on the timetable will indicate a train with a quiet car.

Metro-North debuted quiet cars last year on the Hudson and Harlem lines. The railroad could have a full-system roll-out of quiet cars in April.

NJ TRANSIT and the Long Island Rail Road also have quiet car programs in use.
