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.

A different kind of experience. Everyone visiting the city should take a ride. Try it on Sunday as the crowd is less and the ride can be enjoyed.

This is the traditional mode of transportation in Kolkata setup by the British during their rule. Still runs on the streets of Kolkata. A bit slow but great to ride.

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
