Overview

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.

Trams were the basic life line once upon a time , they are going to be extinct soon so try this before it is no more into operations.

Trams are very old vehicle to of kolkata. Previously they are drawn by horses but now by electric power. The "tuung tuung" sound of tram gives the test of old Kolkata.

We took one as part of a 4 hours walking tour ( highly recommendable!) and it is a nice way to see the city at a calm speed! I really liked the experience!

The Trams are good for joyride but not so much as a mode for transport, being slow moving. Not very comfortable to sit with wooden benches and floors. Dirt cheap to enjoy. Must experience once.

It looks like small train running on the road with other vichels. It has very nominal charge with full of enjoyment.

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
