Cable Cars

Local nameCable Cars
LocationSan Francisco, USA

The cable cars are the moving icons of San Francisco and also represent the last surviving active manual cable car system in the world. You can travel by cable cars on three lines (out of the 23 original lines established by the end of the 19th century). Today it is more of a tourist attraction than an actual part of the public transport of San Francisco. It is no surprise that the cable cars appear in films quite often. Among the most famous ones including the San Francisco cable cars are e.g. Yours, Mine and Ours or Mrs. Doubtfire. You do not need to get your tickets in advance. They are sold by the conductors of the cable cars.
