City of Orlando Quiet Zone
What is a Quiet Zone?
- A “Quiet Zone” is a railroad segment where the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) requires all train engineers to refrain from sounding the 4-note horn warning (2 long – 1 short – 1 long) required when approaching a roadway crossing.
- The City is working towards having the entire SunRail corridor within the City limits become a Quiet Zone.
- The City has installed enhanced safety features within the Quiet Zone, including adding extra crossing arms and signage to prevent cars and pedestrians from crossing when the gate is down.
- Bells will continue to sound at the roadway crossings in the Quiet Zone as the train approaches.
- Horns will be used in the Quiet Zone when entering or leaving a station, when passing another train, or for emergencies.
