Amtrak offers quiet option on route


Traverse City Record-Eagle

---- — DETROIT — Amtrak plans to offer the chance for a quieter ride on trains running between Chicago and stops in several Michigan cities.

The Quiet Car service starts Monday on Wolverine Service trains, which offer several stops a day in Ann Arbor, Detroit and Pontiac. Passengers in a Quiet Car are asked to refrain from engaging in loud conversation or using cellphones or noisy computer programs.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. It will be offered on weekdays and is available on trains in some other places served by Amtrak.
