Cost seven dollars for one way ride good fun stops at every attraction on the way lots of other people want the same seat very long cue from the terminals no cueing from fisherman’s wharf.

We were so looking forward to our cable car ride but we’re amazed at how slow and uninterested the staff are. Had to queue for around 30 minutes even though there were 3 empty cars, staff work at a snails pace and halfway through he journey they stopped at a junction and got off saying their shift was finished. 10 minutes later somebody else turned up. Totally rotten service ruined our cable car experience

Go online and study the routes! During the week end why not catch one infront of the Omni Hotel in the Finacial District? Nobody at work except you know...
I like to end up in front of the Buena Vista Cafe and have an Irish and schmooze or people watch!
Ask the locals about timing if you are a family or group. Dress warm or bring a jacket in
case of wind or Summer fog. You’ll love your photos so wear a cool hat!

What can I say.
At the end of the day we thought we would catch the cable car home.We waited for an hour in the line but we had a great laugh with all the people around us so it flew by.
Once on the tram the driver was hilarious adding to the fun
We hung on the side which is great
Gotta do it !!

I didn’t dislike my journey in these, but if you are pushed for time I wouldn’t bother. We went in Summer when I expect it is busiest, the wait was almost an hour which really takes the shine off the whole experience. It was very crowded so it was hard to really enjoy. To be honest the only bonus was getting from one side of the city to the other but this could have been other cheaper and quicker ways.

By all means if you’re interested in the history of these then check them out, but if you are doing it because you want the experience then be aware.
