Buy a day pass unless you only plan to ride one way ($7. per person, one way). We enjoyed our ride and were grateful not to be walking up the hill!

Buy the San Francisco public transit app on your smartphone and pay for a 24 hour ticket. It’s a lot cheaper than buying tickets that are only valid for the cable car itself. We took the tram on a round trip three times. Different routes each time. The last trip was especially fun as the driver let me pull the bell chord! I recommend hanging on the outside of the cable car! :) gives the ride something extra

Up and Down and Up and Down...if you're lucky you can get a bench seat along the outside edge or even a ride standing up on the edge! Taking you all along the line seeing some of the absolute beautiful homes of S.F. You can ride back to the beginning or call for an Uber.

A ride "just like on the films". Hanging out of the back of the car to take photos. It's a little pricey at $7 but we had quite a good long ride. The conductor was a lovely chap who kept us amused. A "must do" if in SF.

One of the things we wanted to do while visiting San Francisco was to ride the cable cars but they were closed for maintenance. I understand that there has to be maintenance but not sure why they had to close it ALL down. Very disappointed!
