GO to introduce quiet zones on some trains
It’s about to get a whole lot quieter on GO trains.
Beginning Feb. 11, the transit service is designating the upper coach of most trains running on the Barrie line as special Quiet Zones, for passengers seeking solitude from noisy commutes.
In the specially marked areas, passengers will be asked to refrain from engaging in noisy conversations as well as to mute electronics like cellphones, tablets and laptops.
While GO Transit employees will not enforce the silence standards, riders are encouraged to politely ask someone making noise to tone it down or head to another part of the train.
The new zones will be in place on every trip on the line leaving or heading to Union Station, save the 7:22 a.m. southbound trip and a northbound trip leaving Union at 5:35 p.m.
