What are the routes for cable cars in San Francisco?
Here is a look at some of the major highlights of each of the three lines:
- Powell/Hyde. The Powell/Hyde line actually ends up close to Ghirardelli Square. Along the way you can exit the cable car at Lombard Street, famous for being “The world's crookedest street.”
- Powell/Mason. The Powell / Mason line also passes close to Lombard Street. The Powell/Mason cable car line drops you off in North Beach, a quick walk to San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf near Pier 39.
- California/ Van Ness. This cable car rides through the hills of the Financial District and hits the top of Nob Hill where you'll find luxury hotels and nightclubs with some of the most stunning views of the city.
