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.

Service of the metro rail is just ok, . No extension of the route, only they are maintaining the old and existing metro service. Metro routes must be extended as the population is increasing day by day.

Kolkata Metro is the first metro in India and covers a good area in Kolkata from dum dum to beyond Garia. Still lot of area to be covered. A nice way for travelling to cut short with jam and heat above the road. A full makeover is required for metro in Kolkata as lots of area needs to be covered... More

The stations are clean, signage proper and helpful and in-train announcements correct and adequate. Some of the trains are non-air-conditioned and quite noisy. The air-conditioned coaches are much better. Apart for daily commuters, tourists also benefit from the metro services, as many points of tourist interest can be easily accessed from the metro station. Schedules are mostly maintained. Fare is...

Kolkata got its metro when the rest of the India wouldn't have even heard about word called Metro Rail. One of the best things about these metros is fascinating underground stations and the timing of the train. It is definitely pride of Kolkata and inexpensive tickets.You buy a token and just get on. It's far more pleasant than the train!... More

I usually go to office by metro rail. The AC rakes are very good. But the condition of non ac rakes are not so good. They are very old indeed.

Connecting north and south Kolkata in the fastest possible time. The people of north and south fringes of Kolkata can now travel throughout Kolkata. Apart for daily commuters, tourists also benefit from the metro services, as many points of tourist interest can be easily accessed from the metro station. The stations are clean; schedules are mostly maintained. Fare is reasonable.
