    Well, 7USD each way is way to expensive. If you have the San Francisco city card then go, otherelse....

    We just came early (8:00) in order to avoid the 100m line. Cable car is not a must do thing for itself but you would mind if you did not do;)

    De onde sai o cable car pro Fisherman’s Wharf. A passagem custa $5 no cable car. Desça do bondinho quando o motorista anunciar “Lombard Street at your right”.

    A great shortcut to getting into Chinatown from Union Square especially when looking to avoid routes 30 and 45

    Forget about driving, parking is not only expensive but hard to get. Get on BART and stop at Powell St.

    One of the most important spots in San Francisco downtown.. If you want to get on the cable car, it is better to do it from the stop after 2 blocks along Powell st. to skip the long waiting line

    Be sure to get a Passport - good for 3 days for $26. Otherwise, it is $6 each way. We took cable cars, buses and trolleys ALL over the city to get around and really saved!

    gosh it is way too long waiting time... and it is not because of the queuing but the frequency of cable cars.

    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.

    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

    Nice ride, rude cable car operator who kept yelling at passengers. Also, it's expensive, take a ride just for the experience. Then, use Uber to move around its cheaper, faster and more comfortable.

    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.

    Trip is fine, not great. Workers are the rudest people I've ever seen. No information, audio guide, nothing. They need to improve severely to be considered the touristic attraction tourists expect.
