Across Kolkata, tourist pick-up and drop points coming soon

Posted by Team on: Nov 8, 2022

A big city's exploration presents its own unique set of difficulties. The most obvious one is traffic laws and more traffic laws. As visitors to a new city, we frequently find ourselves in trouble because a) we are unfamiliar with the area and can't figure out the routes on our own, and b) due to particular traffic regulations, we are left off or must navigate an unknown path to be picked up. 

Tourists are frequently put in unpleasant situations as a result of this. The city of Kolkata will soon offer unique "tourist pick-up and drop sites" to help solve this problem and make the area a tourist-friendly location. The entire city will have access to this service. Soon, tour companies will be permitted to pick up or drop off customers.

There will be predetermined pickup and drop-off spots under this new business in various key areas of Kolkata. Only vehicles with commercial registration that are run by the Association of Tourism Service Provider of Bengal (ATSP) will be permitted to pick up and drop off guests at these locations.

Additionally, registered tourist cars are permitted to stop for 5–10 minutes at the corresponding tourist pick-up and drop-off locations. With this new facility, travellers may be anticipated to navigate about the city with ease in the days to come.
