Should have used the time to stroll around northwest SF, and I guarantee that you will see more and appreciate more. Don't spend a few precious hours to do this.

You owe this to yourself when in San Francisco. Historically funny ride, but can take you from one side of the city to another. Just do it!

So there are three cable car routes. California gives spectacular views. Powell Hyde is always super busy. Powell Mason is by far the easiest to get on. Buy a Muni Pass because otherwise it’s $8 each way!!!! The staff are very talented and work hard in their role but not very ‘people’ friendly. I guess I’d get annoyed with all the tourists taking liberties too but we’re not all like that and it would be nice not to be treated as such.

Being in San Francisco you just have to ride a cable car!! Took it from Union square all the way up Powell street on our way to Pier 39. Great to experience it!!

Let's face it: the cable cars are a San Francisco icon. The city has to maintain them. And tourists want to ride them So go stand in line for a nostalgic ride, perhaps best on the Powell/Hyde route, which now costs $8 one way. Then go do something else with the rest of your day.
