PATCO 'quiet car' program extended

The PATCO commuter rail line will extend its "quiet car" program past June 1 while agency officials gather customer feedback. The three-month trial run of the program, which bans cellphone talking in the last car of all weekday trains, will be continued until a survey of passengers is completed.

To offer an assessment, go to on the PATCO website during the next three weeks. If responses are positive, the program will be made permanent, PATCO officials said. — Paul Nussbaum
