Petit Futé's opinion on CABLE CAR
The famous little car, climbing and descending the hills, is one of San Francisco's pleasures and one of its most famous icons. What did you see these pictures of agrippés onlookers, on the tramway steps, in sloping streets at 30 degrees, the nose of the Pacific wind! Three cable lines serve the most interesting areas of downtown. La California borders the street of the same name, from the Embarcadero to Van Ness, through the Financial District and the top of Nob Hill. Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason lines both depart from Powell Station, at the corner of Powell and Market Street. In this place you will find all the other necessary transport, streetcar, bus and underground, underground and BART. The line goes back Powell and separates in two to Mason. The Powell-Hyde leaves on The Cannery, at the western end of Fisherman's Wharf, by cutting Lombard Street where it is the most winding in the world. Powell-Mason joins Bay Street, near Fisherman's Wharf. If you want to take the cable because at the terminal, be patient because the queue is long. If not, take some blocks in advance and you won't have to wait for your turn.
