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.

Well laid, pothole free roads, well connected flyovers and bridges, properly lit streets, varieties of street as well as authentic food, mouthwatering sweets, Tube metro.......... but the feature that fascinated me...

If you are interested in experiencing real life in Kolkata you should not miss trams and walking across streets. These trams are a rarity these days and not sure when they will stop the service. So just experience!

Well, this sets the city of joy apart from any other. Running alongside other vehicles on the road on its track, is some viewing. Cheap mode of travel.

If you have time , grab a piece of history and board a tram. There are few routes where Kolkata tram still operates. Many a time you won't have to board from the designated stop. You wave and the benign driver stops. Sometimes it travels(legally) in opposite direction in an otherwise one-way road. Minimum fare Rs 5 and perhaps the... More

It is very old but yet some new trams are introduced. You can travel from esplanade to college Street. Also from ballygunge to khidirpur. It's a nice journey. It's slow but you will enjoy it.
