California Street Cable Car
The iconic San Francisco cable car system is the world's last manually operated cable car system. Twenty three lines were established between 1873 and 1890 and this route is one of only three lines left. It runs only on California Street, running at first uphill to the summit of Nob Hill, then more gently downhill to a terminus at Van Ness Avenue. The city’s cable cars aren’t just an entertaining way to get around this up-and-down city; they really function as public transit too.
