Loved the cable cars of SF! The drivers were very entertaining with their own bell ringing rhythms and banter with the passengers.
This was my first cable car ride which, was very unique and fun. The trolley driver sits in the middle and has a pedal. He has a man that comes around and collect the money. I think we paid $6 one way. If you go early in the morning it's not so crowded you can sit at front or next... More
If you buy the day pass its super cheap. I bought a 3 day pass for 22 dollars and jumped on and off all day. Each trip is 6 dollars so I definitely got my money's worth out of the pass.
We recently visited San Francisco in August 2013 & after seeing these fantastic historic cable cars on TV & Movies it was now our chance to finally ride on them it was really good to do & we recommend the ride to anyone. The staff that operate these cable cars have to work really hard when it comes to stopping... More
One ride might be fun. But can you count on this service? We just had a terrible experience on 11/30 weekend. We bought the one-day pass and the first ride in the morning was fine. Then the ordeal started in the afternoon as we waited for the Powell-Hyde cable car at the station power& clay stop to get to the... More
Have used San Francisco cable cars three times every time was very enjoyable.....easy on and off nice to be part of the heritage or San Fran! Give it a try...bring your camera,
We were there four days, but could never get a ride (it was a holiday) . . . always too packed. It was just as much fun to watch them as it was to get on I think so no big deal. It looked like on Sunday morning you could on without problem. We were down at the wharf on... More
No matter how many times I take the cable cars - it remains one of my favorite things to do in San Francisco. A perfect stop is on California where you walk a block uphill to Nob Hill where you can visit Grace Cathedral and the labryinths or the lobby of the Fairmont Hotel which is one of the grand... More
The cable cars really are a 'must do' in San Francisco. They are rickety, clanking and slow to move especially up the hills, but this is all part of their charm. You can gain some magnificent views from the crests of hills whilst feeling part of the atmosphere the cars provide for the city. You simply hop on, pay your... More
If you go to the City you have to ride the cable cars. It is a must ! Where else can you hang on the side of public transportation and cruise up and down hills of a beautiful city? Yes, the wait is somewhat annoying if you are at Powell and Market. We were there at off season and had... More
