METUCHEN - NJ Transit is giving some of its rail passengers the option of a quieter ride.

Yesterday, the agency began a 90-day experiment with "Quiet Commute" cars on some of its express trains between Trenton and New York's Penn Station.

Passengers on the first and last cars of those Northeast Corridor line trains agree to refrain from using cell phones and to disable the sound on computers and other electronic devices.

NJ Transit Executive Director James Weinstein says the agency will rely on customer feedback to determine whether to make Quiet Commute cars a permanent feature.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
