Metra will start running ''quiet cars'' on all 11 of its train lines next month.

As of June 6, rush hour trains will include designated quiet cars where passengers will be expected to refrain from talking on cell phones, playing music or having loud conversations. Most trains will have two quiet cars.

Metra says a survey of its passengers found 84 percent favored the option of riding in quiet cars.
