Tram occupies a nostalgic place in the mind of Indians dating back to earlier generations. However tram is not obsolete and is still seen in certain routes of Kolkata. How many of you think that it is an efficient mode of transport in the busy streets of Kolkata?

I am a resident of north Kolkata and in our area the tram is a very useful mode of transportation. Many people use this service daily to travel to their office. Tram services are very pocket friendly.

Hey Anamika, do you know that the tram route from Tollygunj to Ballygunj has again started. What do you think it`s good or bad?

Wow, that`s a good news. Tram is also a very essential transport which has to be revived to get back the true essence of Kolkata.

I stay in Pune but my home is in Kolkata. In my childhood days going to school on tram with my friends was a great fun. Today I miss those days but I make sure that whenever I go to Kolkata I must take a ride on tram. It makes me nostalgic.

I don`t like tram rides. It`s very slow and also creates traffic jamn in the bust streets. I would prefer a bus rather than this slow-paved transport service.

Though it is a very slow but riding a tram will feel nostalgic. Now a days tram becomes comfortable and easy accessible.
