Map of San Francisco Cable Car - Fisherman's Wharf, 100 Jefferson St

San Francisco’s cable cars are symbolic of the charm and distinct flavor of the city. In no other place can you ride a moving national historic monument.

Fisherman’s Wharf is served by two cable car lines: the Powell-Hyde line on Hyde and Beach Streets (Aquatic Park near Ghirardelli Square), and the Powell-Mason line on Taylor and Bay Streets (middle of Fisherman's Wharf area, a few blocks from Pier 45 at Taylor and Bay Street). Both lines run between Fisherman's Wharf and Powell and Market Streets in Union Square.

History
The inventor of the cable car was Andrew Hallidie, a Scottish engineer and wire rope manufacturer. Hallidie's inspiration came after observing a team of four horses struggling to haul a public conveyance up a steep San Francisco hill. The cobblestone street was slick from the fog, and when one horse slipped, the car rolled backwards, dragging all four horses with it. Hallidie then designed a cable railway system, and at 5:00 a.m. on August 2, 1873, Hallidie guided the first cable car down Clay Street. Today, San Francisco has 38 cable cars in its fleet.

Cable Car Fares
Adult and youth, ages 5 to 17: $8 each ride, a single ride on a single cable car vehicle.

Senior, ages 65 or older; disabled; Medicare card holder: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.: $8 each ride. Before 7 a.m. or after 9 p.m.: $4 each ride, cash or ticket only. Valid ID required.

No transfers/fare receipts are accepted.

Fare receipts are issued; one-ride-only receipts are not valid as transfers.

An All-Day Passport is sold for $13 if you use the Muni Mobile app, or load it on a Clipper card. The cost of a paper pass is $24. This passport is equivalent to a 1-Day Passport only on the day sold. You may want to purchase this if you will be riding more than one cable car vehicle, e.g., transferring between a Powell line and the California Line, as well as riding other Muni vehicles.
