“Cheap and effective”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Riding on the metro is a handy way to get around town and seeing how the locals get to work. It gets really packed around peak hour which was a fun novelty for me. Also it was a nice retreat from the summer heat while the AC was on.

Very nice, this metro is oldest and not second to any other metro in Delhi or any other place. I travelled from chandni chowk to kali ghat.

“Effective Mass Transit System!!!!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
