- Kolkata is the only city in India which still has tram and is the oldest operating electric tram in Asia. The city's first tramcar was rolled out in 1873, a 3.8km (2.4 miles) service from Sealdah and Armenian Ghat Street.
The tram service is managed by Calcutta Tramways Company. In recent years, it has introduced modern-looking trams,even an A/C tram, but passenger traffic continues to fall.Trams have been an integral part of the city’s history for centuries and even after all the criticism for creating traffic hurdles, trams have emerged unscathed and are likely to glide on the rails and do their jobs for many more years. #kolkata #india #westbengal
