“Only Underground Metro in India”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

It is a means of transport in the City. No fun ride. Mostly terribly crowded and noisy. If you get an A/C one you are lucky.

“Only Rapid transport from North to South Kolkata”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Advantage of metro rail in Kolkata is mainly for rapid transportation from North to South and Vice-verse. Its very tough to travel from North Kolkata to South via Roadways due to Jam ans other problem in long Roadways,specially during Office rushes...The best thing is Kolkata Metro Coaches are..there are separate special seats for Senior Citizen/ Handicapped persons.Lots of Office passengers depend on the metro rail Transportation.
Just Before 6/7 days Kolkata Metro started 2 Helpline nos for Women in distress inside Metro Stations/trains: 9007041789/9007041908
Now onwards its a safer ride for women
clean station,Mobile network availability,less time interval within trains,Armed police inside stations,Checking in-front of every entrance, Magnet token ticketing etc are the good features of kolkata metro rail.

“good for city journey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

It was excellent until 2 years ago. But now quality of service has been degraded. Number of people travel by metro looks like more than capacity. One advantage of this is fare. Now that is seems like disadvantage as well.
