Long Island Rail Road commuters can look forward to a little more quiet space starting Monday.

That's when there will be an extra noise-free car on every single-level electric train heading to Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal during the morning peak hours.

Bi-level trains are not part of the expansion.

Trains leaving those stations during the evening rush will also have the extra quiet cars.
