Tourist? Save money by getting a one way ticket to 0fisherman's Wharf for $5. Then, return by the F street car for $2. You can see more of the city and save $3!
It's touristy but must-do.
Don't tip the people who play lousy music and force you to listen to it while waiting for the cable car
Keep your camera close by for great photo opportunities in the hills of SF - great views of the Bay
The line is super short during non-peak hours.
Don't wait in line at the turnaround like the other chumps. Walk up the street a block to O'Farrell. Shorter line and the cable car always picks up more passengers from there on the way up.
You're gonna wanna ride a cable car aren't you? Sigh. Watch them turn them around here. It's cool for at least 30 seconds.
Hold on tight. You are in for a fun ride!
A painful tourist trap. I recommend going to Embarcadero to head to Fisherman's Wharf, and THEN take the cable car back; typically less of a line...enjoy!
If its your first time in SF a ride on the cable cars is a must. However, plan to take your ride in the morning or the lines get too long.
One of the best places to visit!
Come see the show of a lifetime at Westfield San Francisco Centre! We are rocking through the decades and celebrating the city in a free 3D light spectacular!
As "touristy" as it is, you know you have to take the Powell Street Cable Car! Have your camera at the ready! The fun ride provides you with amazing views! It is a must!
Take this one of a kind San Francisco ride from downtown all the way to Ghirardelli Square (and fill up on some chocolate)!
Make sure to take the Hyde car. It's the one that stops at Lombard St.
Be prepared for long lines on weekends. Much better to try to hop on at a popular cross street where many people are getting off.
Exit BART here at the turnaround which is the starting/ ending point for the San Francisco cable cars which take you right to Fisherman's Wharf.
Great music performers
Don't wait in the long line. Get your ticket and walk up one block to get the next train.
Great place to people watch!
Find out if you can walk up a block to run away from the lines. Take the Powell-Hyde line, hop off on Lombard St and enjoy the amazing view.
If you want a ride on the trams, don't go near the turnaround points. Try a quieter stop, like Mason St & Greenwich St. You might even get a ride for free.
Typically free when you stand on the car instead of sitting
Renew Your monthly Clipper here instead of the SFMTA hell hole on Van Ness?!?...heck Yes!
If you like old mechanical devices this is a must see. A manual turn-table. Take one of the Powell/Hyde cars to see Lombard St and Alcatraz from Russian Hill.
Ride a cable car in San Francisco. When San Francisco constructed its cable car system 125 years ago, no one was trying to build a historic landmark or a tourist attraction
Great tourist stop in downtown
Chilly Night @SF
Tho is very nice!!!!!!!!!
gosh it is way too long waiting time... and it is not because of the queuing but the frequency of cable cars.
Great experience going along the hilly San Francisco downtown roads!
Night ride is amazing and oh, zero line.
If the queue is too long, walk up to the next stop and they will allow you to ride on without any waiting...
It's always fun to see the guys turn a cable car round for its next adventure, take a minute to stop and watch and appreciate the art and finesse they have while doing it!
Very crowded. Be prepared to wait in line.
have to wait for riding cable car around 30 min.
Recreating old memories from May 2009
If the line is long and you just want to ride, try the other route. It starts at California & Market.
long line every day...you do have to be pacient and cable car operators are rude...but it's an unforgettable experience...
Worth it only to be able to say you've ridden the cable cars. It's packed, you'll have to wait a while, and the attendants are kind of rude.
Watching the cable cars come and go is almost as fun as getting on one yourself!
Prices are maxed out at $6 for all ages, single ride, no transfers. This is such an attraction that on weekends the line goes around the block. Consider carefully if it is worth it. Wacky fun though
Pegue a linha Powell-Hyde para descer no topo da Lombard St. Desça a rua, apreciando suas curvas peculiares e pegue a linha Powell-Mason, na Columbus Ave. para voltar ao centro.
