SEPTA tests new quiet car on the R5

    By: Peter Crimmins

    Beginning Monday SEPTA will offer a designated quiet car on the R5 rail line. Riders are discouraged from using cell phones, radios, or engaging in loud conversations in the lead car during rush hours. WHYY’s Peter Crimmins found out many riders welcome the idea.
