City of Orlando Quiet Zone

What is a Quiet Zone?

  • A “Quiet Zone” is a railroad segment where train engineers are not required to sound the 4-note horn warning (2 long – 1 short – 1 long) normally required when approaching a roadway crossing.
  • A Quiet Zone is established by a local jurisdiction under Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) rules.
  • The City is working towards having the entire SunRail corridor within the City limits become a Quiet Zone.

Safety First
