The Powell/Market Street Cable Car is one of the most popular Cable Car Stops in the city. It showcases the famous Cable Car Turnaround, where drivers manually turn the car the same way it has been done since its opening.

The line to get on the Cable Car her is often 30-40 minutes and can be upwards to 1 Hour.

To bypass the line, all you need to do is walk north two blocks to Powell and O'Farrell. The Cable Car makes a stop here and will pick up new riders. The same ride, without the wait!

Your  time as a tourist in San Francisco is limited. Make the most of it!

Address:
Powell St & O'Farrell

Price:
$5 per ride
