These cars are very easy to use, clean, and not overcrowded. I think they look really cool too! Would definitely ride these again when in San Fran.

The street cars were so easy to use, you just had to have exact change. Make sure you pick them up on the main strip, they are less crowded at night when you get on there.

These historic street cars provide a cheap and enjoyable way to get around. The street cars are attractive and fun to ride. We found the drivers very helpful and friendly. Ride the F line to Fisherman's Wharf.
