Overall an efficient ride. The train ride itself is efficient and trains comes regularly. There is AC too. I rode the metro for 6 stops which cost me Rp15. Accidentally roved into women-only cabin without realising but no one told me off or even glared at me, perhaps because I'm not local. The counter staff were not particularly helpful when... More

Metro Railway of Kolkata is the first metro in India and having very strong network. Its frequency and timings are very excellent. Its very economic yet time bound and services are very fast. Travel with metro and free from Traffic jam of Kolkata.

One of the busiest transportation in Kolkata. Some people call it as the lifeline of kolkata. The trains are clean. Stations are centralized AC. However there are few old trains which are not AC.

It is the most essential service every citizen needs today in any metro city. Metro services in Kolkata connected a wide range of places from extreme North to South of the city. However East and West connectivity work is still in progress. Pricing is pretty low compared to other metro services in the country and the frequency is enough to... More
