Review of Kolkata Trams

Owner description: 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.

The Trams of Kolkata happen to be the only one left in India! Apart from being a means of mass public transport, the Kolkata Trams have a history entwined with Kolkata city itself.

One look at them and they take you down the memory lane. They are dying though due to lack of maintenance. Also they cannot beat the taxi's, buses, which one tends to use now in Kolkata. I did miss out the Special tram services which are run now on weekends; it takes you around the historical sights of the city. On my wishlist for the next visit.

Great ride along the Victoria memorial, but quite a hindrance on the busy roads. Nonetheless, a must ride to let the true Kolkata seep in.
