With a capacity of 24 - 53 and equipped with a television and FM radio, the AC and Non AC tram runs four rides daily to the north and south of the city. Each ticket costs includes snacks.

A lot is often heard about Kolkata's dwindling traffic system and how its age-old trams, means of transport that are still existing only in this part of India, are adding to the commuters' woes.

There have even been talks of doing away with old tram cars for good and redesign the city's traffic network.

However, trams are still plying in Kolkata and measures are being taken to resuscitate the 133-year-old Calcutta Tramways Company.

Take a ride in one of these AC or Non AC trams early morning this week and get a taste of old Kolkata's magical heritage.

Call or email Trips & Tours to book your seats. You can book the whole tram if you wish.

With Kolkata now being the only city in the country to have trams still running, one should not miss the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful experience.

Kolkata is the only city of India where the Heritage Vehicle Trams is running. Take a tour from Esplande to Kidderpore by Tram is a unforgettable journey.

Cute, old slow, shaky but fun. All I can say about our grand parents. If you have some spare time try travelling just for the sake of travelling in the late evening. A nice ride to observe the city.
