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.

I was extremely happy to see the tram route between Tollygunge to Ballygunge reopened for operations when I visited last month to Kolkata. This is probably the cheapest way to travel the city. Even cheaper than auto rickshaw. The Ballygunge to Tollygunge route was shut...More

Its the most effective way of the "go Green" campaign. A perfect way to save the environment. Kolkata is the only city in India where tram plies. .It would give u a majestic feeling.

I think this is existed as heritage car of Kolkata & nothing more than that. It starts its journey during British period. But nowadays it creates only traffic jam due to numerous high speed cars & buses are on the street.

We only used the tram once during the day and they seemed to run every 10 minutes approximately. I don't recall an air conditioned tram but maybe they do exist. We saw fans in the tramcar and perhaps this is what you mean... More
