To minimize noise from the sounding of horns at crossings, the Metrolink Arrow service corridor has been approved as a Quiet Zone by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). A Quiet Zone is a section of track at which locomotive horns are exempt from routinely sounding when trains approach crossings, except in emergency situations. Learn more about Quiet Zones.
