The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced this week it will expand its "Quiet Car" program on the Long Island Railroad.
The first car heading into the city in the morning and the last car of each train heading out in the evening - to and from Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal - will have a quiet car during rush hours.
It's a soothing piece of news for passengers who really like the noise-free environment when it comes to cell phones, loud talkers, and and noise from other electronic devices.
Violators are handed a "Shh" card from conductors.
"Quiet Car" riders are permitted to talk, albeit quietly.
