What is the departure time and fare for the ac tram service from esplanade depot in the morning??
I am sharing what a friend of mine told to me.
With a capacity of 24 and equipped with a television and FM radio, the AC tram runs four rides daily to the north and south of the city.
The early morning ride starts at 7 am (the reporting time for the same is 6.30 am) and three others start at 3, 5, and 7 pm.
The tram starts from the Esplanade tram depot and comes back there at the end of each trip.
The morning trip takes one to the north of the city while the afternoon/evening ones cover the south.
Each trip costs Rs 260, including refreshments.
On the itinerary for the north Kolkata trip are the iconic Governor House, Hastings House, Curzon Park, Jorasanko Thakurbari (Rabindranath Tagore's ancestral home), Jorasanko Rajbari, Nakhoda Masjid (city's principal mosque), Star Theatre, College Street etc.
During this trip, the tram takes a small break at Shyambazar tram depot in north Kolkata before meandering its way back.
The sprawling Maidan and the famous Victoria Memorial can be seen in the afternoon tours.
The south-bound tram makes a brief stop-over at the Maidan.
Tickets for the AC tram can be booked either online or at the Esplanade terminus.
