San Francisco's cable cars run on tracks that are powered by an underground cable system. The cars themselves are made up of wooden seats, open-air windows, and a conductor who stands at the front, controlling the speed and direction of the car. Not only are they an efficient way to traverse the city's steep hills, but they also offer incredible views of San Francisco's iconic landmarks.
If you're planning a trip to San Francisco, be sure to add a ride on the cable cars to your itinerary. These charming vehicles offer a glimpse into the city's past while also providing a fun and unique way to get around. You can purchase a one-day pass or individual tickets for each ride, and multiple lines cover popular tourist destinations such as Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, and Union Square. So sit back, hold on tight, and enjoy the ride on one of San Francisco's most beloved forms of transportation, the iconic cable cars.
