“The first Metro Rly in India still maintains Kolkata's pride”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Kolkata metro is one of Kolkata's pride. This is the first metro introduced in India because of the population of Kolkata. It is beautiful and helps a lot to the public. A majority people who work at Kolkata use the metro. But many come to see the metro and have an experience. You can board at Park street / Maidan or Esplanede or any near by station. At late night the metro remains closed. However during office hours there is severe rush.

“Traveling Underground on Rail – Kolkata Metro Railway”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

While public transport is not a problem in Kolkata with buses running to almost every location and trams and taxis complementing them, we preferred traveling by metro rail wherever possible.

Its covering most of the densely populated areas in the city.

Dust free environment well maintained air conditioned stations and trains will be invariably liked by anyone in comparison to the smoke filled surface environment in the city.

“An experience”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

AC Metros and non-AC metros are both an experience in itself. Gives you that feeling of being stuffed during rainy season.

“Visit the underground?”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Technically, not a place to visit. But cities which don't have an underground, I suppose for people from there, they could visit. Some of the metro stations are nice.
