Kolkata Metro was the first metro service in India. It has proved the Test of Time. The sub soil in this part of the country is very soft as it was a marshy area long back. The newly introduced AC coaches are very good and the travel fatigue is not felt at all - and which is so apparent on... More

It was one of the most delayed projects that saw the dawn and a long wait for the citizens of Kolkata to boast about all forms of transportation being available in the city. The citizens were well rewarded by the service and convenience provided by this system. It cuts down the travelling time by great extent and offers a comfortable... More

India's first underground transport. Now overhead lines are also there, and it is expanding more. It is fastest way in Kolkata to move from one stop to another during office time.

Kolkata Metro is the oldest in the country. It took decades to build and is still being developed. There are air-conditioned and non-ac rakes which ply simultaneously. The former are a bit more crowded while the latter, unless it is late at night (which is surprisingly early in Kolkata - within 10 p.m.) they are less crowded. Once in a... More

Now runs from Noapara (near Belgharia) to Kavi Subash (near New Garia station), the train runs underground after Dum Dum station till before Tollygunje station. The services of Metro opened since 1984 and is the most trusted way of commuting amongst people.

India's oldest metro rail may be more then 30 yr old. still they have kept clean and nice, always improving, when ever I visit kolkata may be every 2-3 yr once there is something new. Now they have many air conditioned coaches but still have non A/C coaches which they must change to A/C coaches.

It was the first metro railway in the country. And ever since, it has been a success. Be it the frequency, the cost, or the ease of travel, Kolkata metro is one of the best. Even though, the expansion of it didn't happen as rapidly as Delhi metro', kolkata metro is going to be one of the longest and the... More
