  California Street Cable Car
by geeyook

A trip to San Francisco is not complete without a ride on one of San Francisco's legendary cable cars. There are 3 cable car lines. The Powell-Mason (Market St./Powell to Fisherman's Wharf), Powell-Hyde (Market St./Powell to Aquatic Park) and California Street line (Market St./California to Van Ness/California. The best lines to ride are the Powell-Mason or Powell-Hyde. These lines are longer, curve through neighborhoods and terminate at either Fisherman's Warf or Aquatic Park. The California Street line is shorter, has no curves and runs in a straight line up the California Street hill.
Fares are $3.00 each way.
