Metro railway is a blessing to Kolkata city. One can save a lot of time and money using this facility. A long distance and be covered very easily from north to the south of the city. Air condition facility is also available which helps in travelling peacefully. Tickets are reasonable and can be purchased easily.

The first metro rail of India still retains its grandeur. May not be as modern as say Delhi's but has its charm. Stations need a better upkeep though.

The best way of commuting within city is by Metro. India's first underground Metro is an amazing experience to travel. In just INR 15 you can travel all stations of metro. connectivity is also good, speed is amazing. Only drawback is design of the metro. All metro trains are old. They should be replaced. Without riding a metro in Kolkata... More

As we all know, the first metro railway in the country was established in Kolkata way back in 1984. It took a long time to build it but surely the wait was worth it. Ever since its beginning, the metro is now one of the most important and surely the fastest way of commuting within the city. Unlike other transportation... More

The first metro rail service in india, started in Kolkata . The coaches are pretty old vis a vis New Delhi. The metro needs a midas touch asap. But it's a cheap and convenient mode of public transport in Kolkata. Metro is the lifeline of the city...but has its limitations.
