it is a nightmare to travel in metro. Poor tracks, very very rude attendants, over crowded train, unruly passengers, the list goes on...

Advantage of metro rail in Kolkata is mainly for rapid transportation from North to South and Vice-verse. Its very tough to travel from North Kolkata to South via Roadways due to Jam ans other problem in long Roadways,specially during Office rushes...The best thing is Kolkata Metro Coaches are..there are separate special seats for Senior Citizen/ Handicapped persons.Lots of Office passengers depend on the metro rail Transportation.
Just Before 6/7 days Kolkata Metro started 2 Helpline nos for Women in distress inside Metro Stations/trains: 9007041789/9007041908
Now onwards its a safer ride for women
clean station,Mobile network availability,less time interval within trains,Armed police inside stations,Checking in-front of every entrance, Magnet token ticketing etc are the good features of kolkata metro rail.

It was excellent until 2 years ago. But now quality of service has been degraded. Number of people travel by metro looks like more than capacity. One advantage of this is fare. Now that is seems like disadvantage as well.

The oldest metro of India. It might be old,shabby and occasionally late, but it carries 5 million Kolkatans to their destinations everyday. I am a regular too. You can count on the metro to get around in a short time.
