"Cable Cars" Cable Cars Tip by iclee

Cable Cars, San Francisco: 122 reviews and 165 photos


A tourist's trip to Sanfo won't be complete without taking at least 1 cable car ride. It costs $5/person/ride as compared to less than$1 for bus routes. But hey, I dont have the time to check out bus routes and the cable car stops right infront of my hotel along Powell Street.

The gripman (cable car driver) even remembered us when we rode again the following day. We took same buggy for dinner the previous night.

You'll hear the familiar klang-klang-ting-ti-ting of each buggy but it really depends on the creativity of the gripman.
