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 are now almost obsolete in Kolkata. Also trams are running at a huge loss because only few people board trams now-a-days. Slow speed, non-maintenance and frequent breakdowns are the major reasons for it.

Trams in Kolkata, (though very comfortable, eco friendly, inexpensive, non polluting) are endangered. Gradually trams are getting withdrawn from more and more routes. For elderly, it is perhaps the only way to comfortably travel. Travelling by tram is very smooth and enjoyable, less crowdy though...More

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
