The cheapest and most effective mode of transport in kolkata. Fares are cheaper than bus especially for short distance and it is the fastest mode of transport to reach places. Journey is comfortable and the stations are neat and clean

This is special as it's the oldest metro in India. First underground Metro railway in India. The fastest mode of transport during peak hours. Though all train compartment are not having AC coaches but still one of the cheapest and best mode of transportation.
