Special AC Tram Ride To Witness Beauty of Kolkata’s Heritage Sites After Sun-Set


The trams are an integral part of Kolkata since British era and a visit to the city is incomplete without a tram ride. Keeping this in mind, “Mintlime” – a Kolkata based Event Management Company launched a special tram ride from Esplanade to Khidirpur to witness how Kolkata and its heritage sites look after the sun-set it all its glory.

The journey began from Esplanade and covered Victoria Memorial, Maidan, Eden Gardens, Akashvani, Fort William and Khidirpore Dock. The 24 seater AC tram coach has been equipped with Audio-Visual setup to share historical information regarding Kolkata and its heritage. The first ride was completely free for the elderly people.

The rides start from 5.00 pm till 11.00 pm. The 24 seater tram completes each ride in a span of two hours. A wide range of food and beverage is also served to the passengers during the ride.

The Founder of the company, “Mintlime”, Ms. Rumi Borah is enthusiastic about the future of Tram. She added, “We want to promote our city to the tourists. We already have a tie-up with few luxury hotels and tour and travel agencies. This ride will attract the tourists. In future we have a plan to run the tram more frequently.”

With such initiatives, the tram rides will become interesting not only for tourists but also for city dwellers.
