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.

Only if you have time do take a tram ride. Old, rickety, cheap but takes you down some roads you probably wouldn't go down.

I guess you take the tram to say you have done it. It is easy and safe. Been there, done that !! Not much more to say.

Apart from slowing the traffic down, the trams serve not much of a purpose these days. They are in need of maintenance and refurbishing. They are just a drag on from the by gone era which dont have much relevance today

I remember riding trams in my childhood with my grandfather. This time when I was in Kolkata took a joy ride in this AC tram maintained by the CTC. Worth doing it if you are in Kolkata. Also, see if you can cover the Maidan route in any tram in early morning, simply beautiful.

I was born and brought up in Kolkata ,the city of Joy. Kolkata Tram is the part and parcel in daily life of the Calcutions (dwellers of Kolkata). I used to take very less travel in Trams during my school and college days as it was very slow moving transport in the busy streets of Kolkata. Whenever I got the... More
