It's the quickest, cleanest and generally speaking the most dependable of all of the city's public transport system. Try to avoid the office hour rush, but other than that, it's great.

Kolkata Metro Railway is the first metro of India. It is an underground service. Ticket prices are very low and travel timing is also very short....Must travel on Kolkata metro once in a lifetime.
