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.

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.

I have taken Metro Rail rides at Kolkata uncountable times since my childhood. It was the 1st Metro Railway in India started its journey in early 80s and it is the cheapest as well. Now the trains run North-South between Noapara/Dumdum to New Garia(Kabi Subhash) daily from 7 am to 10 pm.

Its one oldest Metro in world. It connects the whole city through underground channel and can be boarded from all parts of the city. It is the cheapest and fastest mode of transport in Kolkata. It was very systematic and travelling was totally hassle-free.
