I depend on the tram for conveyance, as I am very old. Often I have to wait at Esplanade or Dalhousie Square for a long time to catch a tram, while dozens of vehicles are parked on the tracks in the depot. One can also spot a large number of drivers and conductors lazing around, waiting for trams to return. The route between Park Circus and Gariahat remains congested by auto-drivers, who pick up and drop passengers in the middle of the road, blocking the tram tracks. The slow speed of trams canít be blamed for the delay. The traffic system needs to be restructured.
