But I was little disappointed after I got to board the metro. I felt I had boarded a tin box skidding itself on the rails. The trains need a serious overhaul. The tickets are pretty... More

Since my childhood, I remember travelling in Metro rail. This has helped me in contributing to ecology too. No pollution and traffic free zone. Transportation in minutes to far off locations too. Amazing ride. Avoid peak hours as it is heavy rush.

Kolkata underground metro is one of best attractions for tourists in India. Each & every station is painted according to the names of the station, for example, Maidan(means playground), here different types of sports painting has been done. If you are travelling to Kolkata, you must visit this metro railway to experience it in the way it is .....

Proud to be a passenger of the first underground metro railway system in India. The most affordable, comfortable, secured and speedy journey through the tunnels under the City of Joy. Waiting for the upcoming metro projects for better reachability across the city.
