“Convenient of transport in the city”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I just prefer to travel by Metro whenever there is an option. Everything is good, just that the old coaches of the metro trains are mostly dirty and not cleaned properly regularly. More connection within the city by metro between places to places is much sought after.

“Oldest Metro - A ride is suggested”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Kolkata Metro being the oldest in the country have been service people since many long years. The route goes across the heart of the city. The metro stations are located at major junctions of the city. The trains are now modernized to international level. Metro Railway is serving thousands of passengers everyday with the cheapest fare on earth compared to any other metro railway. The trains are always on time.

“Marvelous Metro”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Long back the Kolkata / Calcutta Metro was ranked as #1 among all the Metro railways in the world. Long time has passed since then. The paucity of funds and other complications have hampered it's mordernisation, expansion and beautification. Still the Kolkata Metro runs through the heart of Kolkata to the heart of all it carries. An ideal to evade the traffic jam and travel fast between North & South Kolkata.

“convinient but not comfortable”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I took the train just once, The train was not clean and smelled really bad... Many people looked at me cos we were only foreigner on the train.
カルカッタのメトロは一回だけ乗りました。結構汚くて臭いもきつかったです。。。乗ってから降りるまで周りの乗客の目線をずっと感じていました。インドの現地の人がほとんどだった気がします。

Reviewed October 5, 2013

A great experience to having a train trip. We only took a Second class of the train. As it is good enough. Its surprisingly clean (toilet a bit tough for ladies). 4 of us manage to had one private cabin (credit to the one of nice metro railway crew).
