How are the roads and rails so far this morning?
Any trouble spots commuters should avoid?
Let us know!
I love the idea of Metro-North having quiet cars. It’s an overdue amenity and I applaud them for following Amtrak’s lead. I do think MNRR should have signage for this because there are folks who I believe unintentionally violate this rule. Maybe MNRR can (again) follow Amtrak’s lead by having ceiling and door signs placed on the quiet car. That would help alot.
Thanks for responding, William. I’ve been hearing that a lot from commuters. Hopefully Metro-North read my story yesterday and is taking note.
I completely agree there should be obvious signage. All I saw were hand-written (with a ball point pen no less) messages on the space where ads usually appear in the cars. The announcements are spotty at best and the conductors reluctantly enforce the new initiative and only when asked by a passenger.
To avoid confusion as to which cars are the quiet cars, why not designate the first and last cars of every train, NOT just during peak hours?
Oh, and one more comment … The conductors in the enclosed booth are the LOUDEST of all.
