Metrolink adding quiet cars to weekday trains
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- New "quiet cars" are being added to some Metrolink routes.
Beginning Oct. 3, one passenger car on every weekday Metrolink train will be designated as a quiet car. No loud talking or electronic devices that can be heard by others will be allowed.
"Our new quiet cars will make the commute on Metrolink trains even more enjoyable for those, like myself, who prefer a more peaceful commute," said Metrolink Board Chairman Richard Katz. "Some of our passengers prefer to socialize or do business on the train. We encourage that - just not on the new quiet cars."
There won't be any additional charge to ride in a quiet car, but seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
