“Effective Mass Transit System!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The City of Joy is quite another place with this useful addition and has made lives of thousands easier than in the olden days. However, compared to the newer versions of metro rail projects in New Delhi and Bangalore the facilities fall short of expectations.

“AC rakes have improved experience”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Addition of some AC rakes have been a welcome addition giving the oldest Indian metro a fresh lease of life. The metro is still fairly clean although I have seen better days before. But considering the enormous passenger load it carries it seems to be doing a fine job. Trains are running fairly on time, criss crossing the city from north to south, a great way to bypass the maddening traffic and travel a good distance at still a dirt cheap price. Further route extensions are on the cards and will be a welcome addition to the city.

“Congested But Quickest Travel Mode”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Have not got the option to use Metro Services for long
The fear of overcrowded compartments in Summers is a horrifying experience to use the same

However this has been the lifeline of Kolkata and fastest way to get one place to other and recently they have added some AC Compartments.

If this is handled well and maintained this is the best and cheapest mode of transport to move from one point to the other and save massive time keeping in mind that City Traffic has been hit more owing to Many A construciton at most zones

“Kolkata Metro Railway - A must ride”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The Metro railway in the city of Kolkata is the oldest in the country and has been serving one of the busiest metropolitan cities of the country for a long time now. The metro is the first underground railway system in India and has upheld the history and heritage of the city. The route cris-crosses the city from North starting at Dum Dum (Soon from Dakshineshwar) to the southern fringes till Garia.

It is one of the most efficient, safe and quick transportation options in the city with a meager ride price. The route from Dum Dum to Tollygunje is Underground and post that it moves along an elevated line.
