lovely low-key way to visit a different neighborhood
Jan 2020
Take the A subway and get off at Puan. Walk a few blocks along Av. Rivadavia, turn right on Emilio Mitre, Walk four blocks to corner of Emilio Mitre and Av.Jose Bonifacio. You'll probably see folks already standing in line to catch this free tram. The ride is about 20 min., punctuated in the middle with a description (in Spanish) of these old trams, after which one of the motormen presents calendars, key chains, mugs, etc.for purchase to support these old trams. A calendar is 150 pesos. We love old trams/trains anyway and this was a good way to walk around a different neighborhood. Limited hours, only Sat. and Sun.

This rattly old tram system is very historical and you can tell as you are jostled around in these rickety carriages. It is well worth the experience however and serves as a visible piece of the history of public transport around Buenos Aires.

IF YOU ARE A FAN OF THESE CRICKETY STUFF
Jul 2018 • Family
BA used to boast one of the most extensive tram system in the world. Alas, this is all that is left of it. But, for the likes of me, a ride in any of these jalpies is worth standing in line. Try, if you can, to look out of the window at a beautiful neighborhood.

Time well-spent.

I wanted to do something that is a bit off the beaten path, and this was it. On a Saturday afternoon I arrived at the corner of Emilio Mitre and Jose Bonifacio just a little after 4, and there was already a line of people waiting for a free ride on the historic trams. I ended up in the second group. The explanations were completely in Spanish, but I did read about the trams beforehand in English, so I at least had some basic background. The volunteers explained the history of the Friends of the Transvia and the work they are doing, and then the ride began. In the middle they stopped and passengers had the option to purchase something to support the organization (I purchased a keychain for 80 pesos), and then you were sent right back to the tram stop. It was a fun way to spend part of the afternoon with locals.

Free rides at weekends on an historic tram
Apr 2017 • Friends
Saturdays and National holidays (16 to 19.30), Sundays (10 to 13 and 16 to 19.30) the Friends Association organizes free rides aboard vintage trams through the streets of Caballito. You canget there on Line A of the Metro at Primera Junta station. The tram stops there or you can follow the tracks for a short distance to the terminus. There are 6 trams housed in the depot where Line A Metro cars are stored, so there is no opporutinty to go inside. However on special days several trams are working, and on a previous visit we saw them all and there was a children's painting competition too. The ride is 2km and lasts about 20 minutes. It is free, you can ride more than once, and there is no need to book. We bought their attractive calendar and there are othe souvenirs for sale on the tram. This is always a nostalgic visit for us as one of the trams was built in our home town of Preston UKI.

Loved this nostalgic tram ride especially as it is free. The commentary gives you an insight into local life and traditions. Cannot believe it only stopped 30 years ago? It was so good we rode it twice..!! Seek this attraction out its worth the effort.
